How to Make your own mead - A Step by Step Tutorial About Mead Making The first thing you are going to discover about Mead Making is that there are about 1,000 different ways to do it. And this may leave you confused. Which way should you follow?
What exactly did I make over Thanksgiving? Well, to the first Thanksgiving celebration, I brought my now-famous cornbread casserole (extremely simple recipe at bottom), gingerbread cookies, and guacamole + tortilla chips. The future MIL was very pleased with my offerings (^_^) and all the guests loved them, too.
Several weeks ago, I wrote a cheap bento guide on my journal. I got a decent response, and I’ve finally decided to move it over here, and update it a bit. In short order (read: a week or so) I’ll be testing some of the containers listed and updating with firsthand data. I love bento. It’s healthy, it’s relaxing, and it’s nourishing.
Sadly, this one is far from impressive. Much to may dismay, my mother has more or less outlawed most non-aromatic vegetables from our house again. Contents: A halved soy egg Carrot slices Celery bits Two onigiri, one triangular and one cylindrical Half a red delicious apple Slices of tonkatsu Now, more about this ban on veggies. I currently live with my parents and younger brother, and I find that their unhealthy eating habits are difficult to change. My mother and brother are the most difficult cases, since my dad is more or less on my side when it comes to putting more variety in our diet.
All of the projects pictured in this instructable were designed and made by me using only hand tools. At the time, my solar-electric powered workshop had not yet been built and I wanted to see if I could learn to use traditional techniques and tools. Since then, I have acquired some very impressive battery powered tools that would have made the process go much faster.
Finding just a bit more table space in a hallway or living room, only when you need it, isn't easy. A classic solution is the drop-leaf table, a 16th-century design still useful today because it's so efficient. Lift the leaf when you want more surface area. Drop it when you want a slimmer, neater look.
The most important tool in any shop doesn't have a motor, a battery or a cutting edge, and it has remained largely unchanged for centuries. A traditional woodworking bench, at its most elaborate, was a virtual showpiece, bristling with vises, bench dogs and holddown clamps. And it was planed dead true to act as a standard for the craftsman to follow. Our rough-and-ready work surface visually recalls one of these classic double-trestle benches, but it's a far simpler affair.

until recently a difficult word to trace, in part because it was taboo to the editors of the original OED when the "F" volume was compiled, 1893-97. Written form only attested from early 16c. OED 2nd edition cites 1503, in the form fukkit ; earliest appearance of current spelling is 1535 -- "Bischops ... may fuck thair fill and be vnmaryit" [Sir David Lyndesay, "Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaits" ], but presumably it is a much more ancient word than that, simply one that wasn't written in the kind of texts that have survived from Old English and Middle English. Buck cites proper name John le Fucker from 1278, but the surname could have other explanations. The word apparently is hinted at in a scurrilous 15c. poem, titled "Flen flyys," written in bastard Latin and Middle English. The relevant line reads:
1.) Gather Parts I designed a mobile bench because the projects I build on my webcast, The Ben Heck Show , typically happen in locations without a shop. To build it, first use a table saw to cut a 4 x 4–foot sheet of ½-inch plywood into panels at the dimensions shown. Obtain two cabinetmaker’s cup hinges (Salice or Blum brands work), four 1 x 1–inch leaf hinges, a box of 1-inch No. 6 wood screws, a 1⁄8-inch combination drill bit and countersink, a 6-inch metal handle, wood glue, eight rubber feet and magnetic cabinet latches.
Wood stoves, lightning rods, bifocals--and the founding of our country--are a few of the things we think of when Benjamin Franklin comes to mind. But somewhere in between flying kites in storms and diplomatic missions to Europe, the great man had a hand in furniture design, including an innovative step stool that doubles as a chair. We've created a version that's easy to build and ideal for any home. It's a four-step design that's hinged at the middle step.
November 29, 2010 12:00 PM Text Size: A . A . A You can have a '67 Mustang in the driveway, a Gibson Les Paul guitar in your hand, and a date with destiny down at the roadhouse open mic—but if you can't find your car keys, you're staying home tonight. The cure for such episodes is this combination shelf and coat rack, which I designed and built for my own front hallway.
