One man and his box
On a recent visit to the local landfill site, I managed to scrounge some offcuts of ply, horrible stuff because it had been used by builders for shuttering, but good enough to make an indoor Barn Owl box. The problem with shuttering is that none of the angles are right angles, and the wood tends to warp in curious ways. Nonetheless, here is the finished product - I mean the box, not the Old Scrote standing next to it - and it will be put up in a barn next Tuesday. All we need then will be a pair of warped Barn Owls who don't mind living in a box with no right angles.
