When Taste Meets Design: 'D.Chirico' Bakery in Australia There's nothing simpler - and surprising at the same time - than a good and tasty piece of bread. And with the same concept Baker D. Chirico, a famous artisanal Australian bakery, asked the Melbourne-based March Studio to design the new interior of the Carlton shop. The minimalistic design features an undulating plywood, that forms wall and ceiling, giving a dynamic sense of space to the narrow shop in addition to providing shelving for the bread. The variety and expanse of the wall allows the display to be re-arranged and altered according to mood or season. All images are © Peter Bennetts Via Trendland

Gear template generator This free online gear template generator is designed for making scale accurate paper gear templates which you can glue onto wood and then cut out with a bandsaw. I recommend printing the gears with an ink jet printer. Even cheap ink jet printers print very scale accurate but Not all laser printers are accurate. Getting the printout to scale correctly, avoiding cropping Different browsers print at different scales depending on browser type and printer configuration. Use an ink jet printer I recommend using an ink jet printer. Printing the gear templates To print the gear template, use the 'Print' button, instead of printing the web page from the browser. The gear generator program that I created and sell doesn't need the scale calibration, and can paginate across many pages for larger gears. Some notes about gear design and this gear template generator This gear template generator generates shapes for involute spur gears. The gear tooth generation is not perfect. Any questions?

Start a 1-Acre, Self-Sufficient Homestead - Modern Homesteading Everyone will have a different approach to keeping a self-sufficient homestead, and it’s unlikely that any two 1-acre farms will follow the same plan or methods or agree completely on how to homestead. Some people like cows; other people are afraid of them. Some people like goats; other people cannot keep them out of the garden. Some people will not slaughter animals and have to sell their surplus stock off to people who will kill them; others will not sell surplus stock off at all because they know that the animals will be killed; and still others will slaughter their own animals to provide their family with healthy meat. For myself, on a 1-acre farm of good, well-drained land, I would keep a cow and a goat, a few pigs and maybe a dozen hens. The goat would provide me with milk when the cow was dry. Raising a Dairy Cow Cow or no cow? On the other hand, the food that you buy in for this family cow will cost you hundreds of dollars each year. 1-Acre Farm With a Family Cow

Федеральная служба государственной статистики Build a bat house This bat house works best when mounted on a building or similar structure, where temperatures are more stable. When pole-mounting, add extra chambers or build two of these houses and pair them back to back (facing north and south). Mount pairs on two poles with a 1-inch gap between the houses to provide temperatures suitable for a nursery colony.

Единая межведомственная информационно-статистическая система, ЕМИСС Handy Farm Devices - Cobleigh - chapter 6 HIS trellis is made of the iron hoops that are now used so commonly upon sugar and other barrels. They are of stout wire, welded into a complete circle, and, as barrels are constantly going to pieces, one can get together quite a collection of these, when they can be assorted into uniform sizes. An attractive trellis is shown. Diligence is the mother of good luck. -- Franklin. The ordinary wooden hoops from barrels may be made into an attractive trellis for grapes or a support for smaller twining plants by being arranged as shown in the sketch. A good way to pole beans is to make a folding trellis out of plastering lath, as shown in the cuts. Bore three small holes through each lath, as shown in the first cut and fasten them together with common wire nails well clinched. Set posts at convenient distances apart and stretch a wire at the top. Trellis that Stands Alone A plant support or garden trellis, such as shown in the drawing, is very handy in the garden.
