    Tooling Steel on Drill Bits and Chisels

    Chicken coup plans

    Whatever you build make sure you protect them from the neighborhood dogs. Wife and I had a dozen or so many years ago and the neighborhood german shepard got into them one night and killed every one. He went right through the hardware cloth I had over one of the windows.
