New widget

March 14th, 2009

I have added a new widget to the blog page, thanks to my son Zach, so that I can keep track of my progress on updating my web page. It will be a good visual reminder to me on my progress or lack thereof.

New chipper

October 29th, 2008

I went down to Puyallup to pick up a new Jimna Chipper to put on the John Deere. It will chip up larger branches than my old shredder. Now I have no fear of the piles of brush that get generated when I take down trees for my projects. It is really quiet!

The wood pile

October 12th, 2008

I worked on the wood pile today. I found lots of interesting plum wood out there and cut up some to investigate the spalting possiblities. My grandson helped me move it further to the back to make room for a tool shed that I am building behind the chicken coop. Once the tool shed is moved from it’s current location to the new home I will have room to build a new roof to cover my large pile of turning wood.
Then, I will have dry wood to work on in the shop to make new and exciting projects.

Rainy Friday

March 14th, 2008

It was a cold day, a cold damp day in the northwest as a hard rain from the Southwest pelted the ground.

It was a good day to work in the shop.
