A very interesting look into grain bins. I had no idea they were this important or this engineered. I really found this video fascinating.

Lots of little tips and tricks to pick up on here. The track saw jig and dado jig for the router in the beginning of the video are both great! Also, Soo…much…storage..

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an asymmetrical bow before. From the video’s description: The tradition of the Shibata family’s Kyo-Yumi has a history of about 500 years.
To Japan, where bows made in Kyoto are known as Kyo Yumi. They are famous for their strength, resilience and elegance. 250 years ago, there were around 50 bow makers working in the Gokomachi area of Kyoto city, producing bows for samurai and the nobility. There is now only one such household in Kyoto and it belongs to Shibata Kanjuro.

GREAT joinery on this one. A beautiful table that is solid and well built. So many joints and with proper planning and execution they all come together.

I’ve shared bits and pieces of this build over the past several weeks. The chair is done and this is the complete edit of everything, start to finish. I honestly think it would look better in my dining room, but oh well.

Ashley takes you on tour of Erickson Woodworking with Tor and Robert Erickson. Kiln, off the grid, chair making shop. It’s always interesting going behind the scenes in a functioning woodworking shop.

Have you ever heard of AeroBarrier? I haven’t but a lot of people sent me this video when I put insulation in my shop. It’s a spray caulking that seals all the tiny air gaps in a home. This is definitely interesting technology.

  1. The farmer I worked for in high school didn’t use silos. He had corn cribs, basically a log cabin, but missing every other log so the corn would get plenty of airflow. He used the corn for feed for his hogs. He had a small attachment that would harvest 3 rows of corn at a time. He kept it on the ear, not separated like modern combines do. He pulled a gravity wagon, when full he’d pull it to the elevator, and we’d proceed to shovel ears of corn… so much corn. A scoop shovel of corn is heavy, and it was a sun up to sundown kinda job. It had great benefits for a kid though, the old guy always bought our food, and it was pretty good pay for high school.
