You can buy the logs from a garden nursery for around R55 to R75 depending on the size. We capped it with an old coffee can so it woun't rot from the rain. The whole must face South East. The log comes with only a shallow hole and the barbet does the rest, it only takes them a couple of days to excavate the whole nest.
Sorry SM - this is what happens when I read the thread backwards. :o0ps: :o0ps: :o0ps:

A very good idea though S.M.

We had a stranger in our garden on Wednesday - must be someone's pet that has escaped.

I feel very sorry for it as not sure how long it will survive in the wild.

It looks quite happy though. :-)
