Chicken Coop #2: Work fast, the chicks have landed

05-04-2016 04:31 PM by ConnieReed | 7 comments »

I’ve been using every nice day we’ve had, that I can, to work on my chicken coop. I am having so much fun with this! Part of it is being proud of myself for tackling this project, and doing pretty good with it too, and part of it is the crafting part of it. I didn’t simply draw up plans and go to the lumber yard. For one thing, I doubted my ability to precisely follow the plans. I don’t have the skills or the tools to make all the exact-perfect cuts, angles, etc. I nee...

Hermit House Woodworking Projects, 2016 #2: HHWW: Bosch Chicken Coop

Last year, before I owned any tools, I came across a set of chicken coop plans from Bosch.

To that end, one of the back (uphill) walls of the octagon will therefore be common with one of the walls of the coop and provide access to nest boxes for egg collection as well as food and water containers. After a few free Craigslist lumber finds, I was ready to proceed...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

09-14-2009 03:39 AM by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...
