telephone "upcycled" into birdhouse
« on: May 30, 2013, 06:30:31 PM »
Browsing through Etsy when I saw a "upcycled" 554 made into a birdhouse for $50.
Don't you hate it when people  "improve" telephones.
At least it wasn't a valuable, being a 1984 beige.

It's a poorly designed birdhouse at that.  A good birdhouse should NOT have a perch, it only serves as a handhold for predators, birds don't need them.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

I am curious as to what is holding the fingerwheel on?? The finger stop appears to be behind the wheel?
