    What is the bestest cheapest to build a wood duck box.

  • #2
    I recently built 2 woodduck boxes out of 1x12 pine. The plans called for cedar but they did not have 1x12 and I did not want to spend a fortune. I coated the outside of the boxes in polyurethen (sp). I did not spend a lot to do this. I hope they hold up. I pulled the plans from a book I got from the DNR in my state.
