Place the owl house on its base, front fac­ing you. Mea­sure 60mm in from the side, about 130mm from the base. Make a mark. From that mark draw a box 170mm up and 120mm wide, but with a gen­tly rounded top. This will be the owl’s front door. Us­ing the 10mm drill bit, drill a hole just in­side each cor­ner of this door­way. Us­ing these holes as start­ing points, cut out the door­way us­ing the jig­saw. Lastly, screw the 200mm land­ing perch flush with the bot­tom of the door­way, to give the owls some pur­chase when land­ing and tak­ing off.
