Yes, I ran out of pallet at the very end and had to use a bit of laminate.

Nice! There is a guy here that has an owl nest. It's not a box type, just an open nest. He put a live camera on them a couple years ago and streams it on FB. They are cool to watch. The female is sitting on eggs now.

Yes, pilot holes would have been a good idea; but I was doing it for free99 as quickly as possible with a found abandoned pallet.
I added some wood glue today with pine bedding to reinforce the laminate cracks, and a tree branch (pilot holes used for screwing on branch)

Thanks
Taking it somewhere (not my neighborhood) there used to be an owl, but the owl hasn’t been seen in a year or two.

If you have FB here is a link to the owl cam someone has setup here. This is the 3rd or 4th year a pair has raised young in this nest.
