Default Requesting special projects help

Are you artsy or crafty? Resourceful using readily available materials? Have a knack for figuring out how to make directions really work? Do your friends and family call on you when they need help with a special project? If so, we're going to begin asking for help for our fellow forum members. If any of the projects we list appeal to you and look like something you would like to try anyway, please claim one and photo document the process so we can all follow along.

First up we have a European Sparrow Trap:

Default Home plant propagation unit

Next up is a request for a home propagation unit. I've been sent threads from all over the internet. People are doing this for a lot less than the cost of store bought units.

Examples of units that look easy and affordable to duplicate:

Default DIY bat houses bathouses

Bathouses would be our third request. We could use several different styles. Different species of bats will have different habitat requirements. That's why it's good to know the species indigenous to one's area before choosing a bat house plan. No sense buying or building a bathouse if one doesn't have a species that would use one because there are only isolated populations or because they aren't present at all where they garden.
