Building a nesting box

Building the side components

Building the side components

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the sides of the nesting box. Therefore, we recommend you to mark the cut lines on the 1×12 slats, making sure the dimensions are highly accurate.

Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and remove the residues before continuing the outdoor project. Make sure the other side has the same dimensions and shape, otherwise the end result won’t be professional.

Fitting the bottom

Fitting the bottom

Cut the bottom of the nesting box out of 1×12 lumber. Attach the sides to the bottom, drill pilot holes and insert 1 1/4″ screws. Add waterproof glue to the joints and make sure the corners are right-angled.

Fitting the front supports

Fitting the front supports

Continue the woodworking project by fitting the supports to the front face of the nesting box. Therefore, we recommend you to drill pocket holes at both ends of the 1×2 supports and to attach it to the sides of the box by inserting 1 1/2″ screws.

In addition, fit a 1×4 slat to the nesting box, in order to create a rigid and durable structure. Leave no gaps between the components and make sure the screws are inserted properly.

Attaching the back slats

Attaching the back slats

Attach the 1×4 slats to the back of the nesting box, making sure you leave no gaps between them. Work with attention and align the slats at both ends before inserting the 1 1/4″ screws. Drill pilot holes to prevent the wood from splitting and add glue to enhance the rigidity of the structure.

Fitting the roofing slats

Fitting the roofing slats

Building the roof for the nesting box is a straight forward process, as you just need to attach two pieces of 1×8 lumber to the frame. Work with attention and take accurate measurements if you want to get a professional result.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the table from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the box in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
