Default Mini Birdhouse question...

Those fellow addicts. I call upon you for your input into a small dilemma.

While trying to spray adhesive onto my cut out birds I find while spraying the first the rest seem to be blown away. How do you get around this conundrum?

I have 30 birds to affix to wood. Thanks for any insight..

I had that problem also. I started using the same small ( about 12" X 16" ) piece of Masonite every time to spray the pattern backs. The Masonite catches the overspray which remains a little tacky even a couple of weeks later. That tack holds the patterns in place but allows the sprayed pattern to be easily picked up with my fingers.

Thanks Bob, that is what I have been doing as well but was hoping someone else had another solution. This way the front is still tacky and some sawdust seems to adhere muddling the cut lines forcing me to use clear tape prior to cutting. I'm thinking of going to the store and get some straight pins and pin the little suckers in place...LOL.

Hey Mike here's a tip: Start with a long blank. cut the bird patterns in a strip of two or three. Then you have a longer piece that will not fly away when you spray. Then apply the strip to your blank. Then go to the table saw and cut the single blanks apart. Here's another tip: Drill an 1/8" hole centered on the line at the bottom of the bird. When it gets cut out there will be a notch that will fit nicely on the perch.
BTW, I do use clear packing on all sides of the birdhouse and bird patterns.

Why don't you just spray a bunch not cut apart before pasting on your wood?

Because I have a toothache and I'm not thinking ahead right now. I sat down to relax and decided it was a good time to cut out the birdies. Then it dawned on me.

Owwwwweeeeee My toofie really hurts and dentist is out of town until Tuesday.

Poor Mike! Hope you feel better soon. Head for the pharmacy and look for Dent-Temp. You can put it in the bad toofie. Should help.

I can't help you with the other birdie problem because I don't use spray adhesive. I use a Kyron machine. Puts a sticky back on paper which is very easy to handle. Comes off the wood easily too.

Hey Mike,

I generally do the same thing Dan suggested, however for those times when I just have one small piece to spray, I use a stiff piece of wire to hold it down with one hand, while spraying with the other. I do not attempt to chew gum at the same time.
