A pair of dovecotes

These two 1:12 scale dovecotes are made from wood and were separate custom commissions. The top one is three sided to go on the side of a barn. The second one is free standing and is six sided. I carved the little pigeon also.

Here is the photo I worked from and was inspired by:

This is the three sided dovecote before I painted and aged it:



  1. Nice job I am sure the owner is pleased.

  2. Once again another fabulous miniature work of art........fabulous!!!!

  3. So much nicer than most of the houses I see in miniature for birds. These dovecotes have to be a bit bigger than most bird houses, right?

    1. Thank you!
      Doves and pigeons, being larger than songbirds would need bigger accommodations. But I've seen very large birdhouses, condos actually! We had one at the farm. Very big multi-level.

      ps can you tell I love birds?

  5. The dovecotes are wonderful. I just seen one of your duck decoys on another blog and thought it was 1/1 fantastic work.
