Out of Work? Do what Ernest Huber did...



A Ritzy Bird House

Philadelphia- A hobby was responsible for this "feather" hotel. Ernest Huber, butcher, 2872 Orthodox Street, Frankford, PA, out of work for nearly 18 months fashioned the above bird house from 7,000 pieces of wood. He is shown putting on the finishing touches.

Sounds like a good idea - do you think it would work for antique dealers too?

Hey Kim,

Not sure if you'll make any money, but I can guarantee you'll have a nice pile of wood to show for it!
