This is an interesting Cache container. When constructed with care and with the right wood they will see it but not know that it is the cache.
Geocache hides can very a lot some are very easy to find and I don't know anyone that don't like to find that easy hide. Others will will talk about the cache hide that they don't like but .... they will still pick them up as a find, just not their favorite. That's the fun of geocaching there are so many typs of geocache hides out there and you just never know for sure what the next cache find is going to be and the Bird House Cache will get you some interesting logs to read for sure!
* Old Hindge
* 2 Cabnet Door Magnetic Latches
* Small Dowel or Piece of a Tree Branch
This picture is showing the two bottoms or false bottom to hold the cache log.
The space between the two bottom pieces is only the height of the latch assemblies.
The bottom screw you should leave it out just a little for cachers to grab and pull the bottom open. I used an old bent nail for the pull.
When constructing the Bird House Cache it is BEST if you use OLD WOOD old barn wood would be best. I used an old bird house that has been out in the weather for a couple years and modifyed it. You don't want fresh cuts visible so unlike the pictures you may want to make 45 degree corner cuts and stain the cuts to match the old wood. YOU WANT IT TO LOOK OLD!
For the hindge and nails I used muriatic acid
(Be very carefull with this acid - it can and will burn your skin!)
and put them out in the weather to rust to age them. You may want to make your "Bird Houst Cache" now and let it sit outside for the winter to age then place it in the Spring.
