A Moulin Rouge for the birds

Katie’s Moulin Rouge bird box has been complicated to make due to compound angles for both the roof and the sides (but especially for the roof). Luckily Katie proved to be a bit of a maths whizz in calculating the sizes of the triangles and the proportions of the bird box are extremely striking and sure to make a great artwork.

Katie says

The inspiration for my bird box is from the film, Moulin Rouge. I am recreating the windmill. With sails, the body and design.

 The windmill, will be the colour of a very deep red, with black details for the windows. The roof will be a very dirty colour of grey.

 The reason that I chose to do the Moulin Rouge windmill is because I am a huge fan of the movie and I thought that the shape and design of the body would be a perfect size for the birds to inhabit. It has a very tall and sturdy structure to it.
