Cute budgie!

It looks like you're working on particle board, I personally wouldn't try that.  I'm not sure what effects the heat would have, but I know a lot of those types of boards are made with formaldehyde.  Not good to be around.

You can get scraps of different types of wood at most home stores.  Most have a scrap bin somewhere near where they cut the wood, and you can get pieces for less than a buck usually.

It's fun to experiment with different wood types, hardnesses, grains.

Have fun!  Grin

My mom used to have budgies.  I still love to hear them talking and singing to themselves.  They have so much personality!

I, too, have a feathered baby in my home!  ^_^
Her name is Perciville.  She adores anytime I leave my pin coushion unattended.  That, or if she gets into my button jar.
But the min. that the sewing machine starts making noise, she'll crawl up my arm and wait on my shoulder until it's over.
