mason bee houses are back! June 04 2012
by the sweet 'world reclaimed', also known as aloe designs' caitlin and owen black. "This little Mason Bee House began its journey as Ipe (brazilian hard wood) deck end cuts. Each leftover piece had its struggles; either being warped or split or simply just not pretty enough for the job… but after some trimming, shaping, finishing and fastening with Grandpa’s nails they worked themselves into homes for our disappearing population of mason bees.
The mason bee house itself is created from FSC Ipe that seemingly lasts forever. It is as hard as a rock but to keep the rich hues this house has been sealed with Penofin Verde so our petite friends stay healthy. Left untreated or without re-applying an oil, it will silver beautifully.
Take me home, inhabit me, and make some blossoms very happy this spring."
