I went for the "classic round.
A long time ago I saw someone make one with a plastic (poly) sleeve over the wooden head. I liked the idea and find that it works out very well. The poly give a bit of cushion and a bit of grip when it strikes the end of the chisel and seems less likely to glance off if not hit perfectly.
(hitting a domed round end of a chisel handle with a round mallet does not always go as planned)
The sleeve can be replaced when it gets too worm.
I used 2" black poly tubing

Hadn't circled back to this thread in a while and glad I did...so many neat and interesting items I've never thought to try before.

I have had a copy of D. Sing's book on miniature birdhouses for a while and finally decided to give them a try as I had several small pieces of various wood. A bit of a challenge and quite fun.

Where the tenon fits into the roof is 3/4" on all of mine so you can judge the rest by comparison. Other than just the usual turning techniques I found the perch to be the most difficult, design, size and making it look OK without breaking it.

I put a mini split A/C in the shop three years ago. One of the best things I have ever done to the shop. Prior the shop was all but unusable for four months out of the year in my area of Florida. I am one that spent most of my life working outside in our summer heat and sun. The shop was just too hot and humid for hobby time though.

Can you share what this is and/or a picture of your finished shop?  I really struggled in my shop yesterday...thanks.
