The Chicken Coop

99 days ago by mervillehomesteader | 11 comments »

About a year ago I moved onto 5 acres full of nice size fir and cedar trees a lot of trees. We cut down about a half acre for garden and chicken space. From the trees we cut down we got 5000 board feet of one inch and two inch fir timbers (mostly 10inch wide by 10 to 20ft long) and a tonne of one inch cedar planking (averaging about 14inches wide). That’s a lot of wood for one lowly carpenter but I think I will manage. Well first things first. Dig a garden and get the chickens out of...

Kitchen Table #1: The plans, day 1, and day 2

422 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Over the past week I’ve been building a much needed kitchen table. It is a country style table based off of Ana White’s plan. I have made a few modifications to it to suit my own personal preferences (and my wife’s). So far I have the full construction complete except for plugging any screw holes. Here is the most recent picture.You can catch up on the build by clicking these links.The PlansDay 1Day 2

Bloggin' about loggin'

Here are a few pics of the maple and alder collecting I did last fall and late summer out at the tree farm. A few whacks with the maul on a couple of wedges turns this into these ;-)) This double grab hook comes in real handy Easy to open when it gets bound up too tight :-)) Handy for lifting logs too The Tree Farm is on the far end of the low hill in the foreground. It is just about dead center in the picture where the darkest green gets a bit lighter for the next hill...

The Slowest Farm Shop #4: The slowest summer ever? But there are projects...

1752 days ago by Will Mego | 4 comments »

So like many here, this summer has been one of hardship, and little work, and lots of stress. But as outlined earlier, that’s why this blog is titled the way it is. This spring didn’t see as many trees fall as I figured would, so not as much work there. One old box elder did take a plunge…right into the fork of a large mulberry tree, splitting it about 10 ft….but still 10ft off the ground….and over a fence right into the neighbor’s garden…so that w...

Moving to the Farm #1: And so it Starts - The Starting Stock

1885 days ago by PG_Zac | 9 comments »

This is a woodworking website, so I’ll try to limit this blog series to mostly wood related entries. Many people have expressed their desire to move to a farm.

I decided (with my wife’s approval) to work out...

The Slowest Farm Shop #3: Mildly Frighteningly Sharp?

1888 days ago by Will Mego | 7 comments »

So today I managed to pick upWhat’s this? It’s plate glass!I got it home, and a little later, after picking up some 3M-77 spray adhesive and some more sandpaper,I then got to work lapping my beat up blue marples chisel. As it turns out, the chisel has gotten WAY out of wack. Probably from my misguided attempts at lapping it in the past, but oh well, that’s why I had gotten them cheap, so I could learn without destroying something special.The pictures of the lapping and honin...
