Homemade Panel Saw From Pipes And Castors -- Every Workshop Should Have One!
 
02:50
Panel saws are great for cutting up big 8 x 4 sheets of plywood or chipboard or mdf or whatever. They cost thousands to buy though, so I made this one a few years ago now and it cost maybe 40 euros plus the skil saw that I can still use separately if I want to. It is brilliant! I use it often and it has to be one of the most useful tools I have. The long spring is just to keep the electric flex out of the way. If you think this might be useful to others please like and share. Thank you!
How To Make Perfect Dipped Beeswax Taper Candles (In An Old Tin Can)
 
04:06
Home-made beeswax candles are a real pleasure to make and to use - and they make a perfect gift too. Everyone should have a go making them (especially if you have children and/or bees?). The key to doing it successfully is choosing the right containers in the first place. In this case we’re using an old gallon can that once contained wood-preservative. (Cut the top off with a can-opener.) Whatever you choose, it should be deep and straight-sided, or you’ll have to heat more wax than you need to. The outer container just needs to hold enough water to keep the wax melted. These are cotton wicks – you can get ones made especially for beeswax (but they all seem to work). Keep the wax just above melting point – any hotter and you’ll only have to cool them more between dips. Or wait longer. Purists among you will say these need rolling – well we like them with the odd wrinkle. After all, they’re home-made and they should look it. If you want them smoother, just roll them between wet, flat boards while they’re still warm. And if you want them parallel and not tapered, you’ll need to turn them upside down half way through the process (why would you bother??). These are available now in our online emporium http://www.wayoutwestemporium.com/
Smoking Some Of Our Mackerel Harvest In Our Simple Homemade Fish Smoker.
 
03:57
This short video shows how we made our homemade smoker and how we use it. It was built as a quick prototype -- but it worked so well it didn't seem to need improving so it hasn't been changed for years! It is utterly reliable and seems indestructible - and cost very little. (The wooden chimney is made from ¾" plywood, the racks are made from a cut-up shopping trolley, the wires are fencing wire off-cuts.. ) You can smoke cod, coley, pollack, mackerel, herring, salmon, ling, herring and all sorts of other fish this way -- and it's really easy and they all taste great. You can also hang up bacon strips or strings of sausages - or put anything you like on the racks (tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, shellfish, cheese, etc., etc.. ) I should have added that if the fire gets too hot, then dampen the shavings with water, or close down the chimney a bit by putting a board over the top. It only gets used a few times a year, and then the chimney goes back under cover (under the house) and the base just sits there gathering moss -- ready to spring back into action at a few moments' notice.. : - ) Ok, here are some important website links.

Turned Wooden Pots With Lids, Made from Firewood
 
04:32
This is a real nice project and makes a lovely gift (well I hope so anyway!). Using just a log from the wood stack I turned one in about 20 minutes using a chuck in the lathe and simple tools. It has a fitted lid that is turned at the same time as the main pot, so they fit together and I think they look quite good. I am no lathe expert so I’m sure all my many mistakes will be pointed out to me, but even I can make these and they are really satisfying. they need making in a particular order though - that's what this film is for. I made a gouge and a small cutting tool from chainsaw files – because they are hard and keep sharp for a while. I think this is a piece of apple tree from Madeline and Mike’s orchard. We helped them prune some old trees back in the spring and these branches were going on the fire but I rescued a couple as an experiment. In case anyone’s interested, Sandra, Henry and Winnie are off to town to offer rides around the square on Christmas Eve. ..

Homemade Steam Wax Extractor And Hive Sterilizer
 
03:31
This is the set-up I have for cleaning and sterilizing old frames and hives -- and for extracting bees' wax from comb and cappings. It looks a bit rough -- but it works really well -- and cost me nothing at all. You could pay a fortune for a steam wax-extractor, but why would you? This one uses the hive boxes for the steaming chamber and an old gas bottle as a water boiler. This is an important part of beekeeping -- it's part of the process of recycling and sterilizing equipment, and it accesses all that wonderful wax. Solar wax extractors just don't work here in Ireland (or, more accurately they work on one or two days in the year) and anyway they're too small for my needs -- so here's what I came up with. I hope it helps and inspires you. (Please like and share!) Notes: 1. Hot steam will burn you badly, so be careful! 2. Doing anything with an old gas bottle is also potentially dangerous unless you are certain that it contains no gas. I find it necessary to remove the small frame that protects the valve so I can get at it with a spanner. The copper pipe fittings didn't quite match the thread -- but there's no pressure in the system so this isn't a problem. 3. This process sterilizes very well, but because we have AFB (American Foul Brood) in Ireland, I like to soak them in a bleach solution as well.

Never Ever Ever Buy A Tin Of Chickpeas Again! (And How To Make Hummus Quietly)
 
03:17
Don’t tell me – you can buy tins of chickpeas much cheaper in your local supermarket. I am very pleased for you but we live on the west side of the west side of Europe and things cost loads of money here. And these weren't even organic. The mincer was €20 and the pressure cooker was €10 – both from the market. Easily paid for every time I cook up some dried chickpeas.. Sandra and I disagree on how hummus is pronounced. But we both like to eat it. By the way, the German for chickpeas translates as giggle-peas. Just saying : - ) Good eating!

Sewer Pipe Strawberries - The Best Place To Grow Them!
 
01:36
We really must put a few more of these pipe planters up, but in the meantime we only have the one. We get plenty of strawberries from it though. The pipe keeps a lot of water in the soil, so they are a really easy to look after and to harvest -- and none are lost to the slugs or the dogs or the sheep or the horses.. The ends are blocked with lumps of wood. The holes were cut with a jigsaw. The runners (the baby strawberry plants) are ones we collected from our outside bed (more on those later in the season). At the end of the fruiting season we take it down and leave it outside the polytunnel door. Easy or what?! Here's how we make the holes.. https://youtu.be/SCcK9vvSEeo Here's our online store where you can see some of the craft things we make and sell.. http://www.wayoutwestemporium.com/ and here's our Patreon page.. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2761318&ty=h Copyright WayOutWest.

How To Make Sauerkraut! (Or Perfect Pickled Cabbage.) (Or Grow Your Own Probiotics.)
 
03:54
German sauerkraut recipe made with our homegrown Irish cabbages (with inspiration from the wonderful Christine - who is neither German nor Irish). Those probiotic capsules can be bought online (of course) but we get ours from a local wholefood shop. Sauerkraut is a bit of an aquired taste, it seems. Sort of sour-tasting but refreshing at the same time. Sandra acquired her taste for it growing up in Germany. Some of us less fortunate people have to acquire it in small steps with plenty of bread and butter. Undoubtedly it is full of good bacteria and breimming with healthiness – so we’d recommend it for sure! The trick to making this successfully is to keep the cabbage under the liquid, so the air can’t get at it. If in doubt, throw it out.

Making A Five-Bar Gate With The Homemade Chainsaw Mortiser
 
04:13
This is the first thing we made with the mortiser. You can see the how it was made in this video www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2CGslzGdB4 It could certainly be improved but it did work quite well as it is. It’s a bit low, so there’s too much leaning over, and if there was suddenly lots of jobs for it, then it would be worth making some way to move the stock timber along without clamping/unclamping it. I sharpened the chain again and there was less tear-out than in the trial piece. The timber used for this gate is only cheap white deal (spruce) because that’s all we had around – and also because I didn’t know whether I’d be wasting good wood if I couldn’t make accurate enough slots. Next time I’ll try to get some larch or Douglas Fir. Some people bolt their gates together, but they will sag unless the bolts are really tight. I used nails because they’re cheap. The gate posts were already there – made of steel, so I had to weld up some hinges to fit both the gate and the post. All in all, a gate is quite a bit of work, but it’s a really satisfying thing to make and the mortiser saved hours of work. (I made 7 farm gates when I was a teenager for my parents – it was my first paid commission. I still remember how tedious and slow and exhausting the process was because everything was done by hand – drilling with a brace and bit, chiselling out the mortises, sawing down boards with a handsaw, the whole lot. This gate was MUCH quicker!) Thanks to Madeline, Lisa, and Bernd - they were around when it was time to creosote and hang the gate, so of course they got roped in.

Cleaning And Filtering Beeswax In A Homemade Wax Steamer
 
03:26
Getting clean wax from old combs and frames is not that easy. I do it in two stages. The first stage -- Wax Extracting -- is covered here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wzkxq7qGqxQ This is the second stage -- cleaning blocks of dirty wax to get the bits and pieces out. If you just pour hot wax through a filter, it will cool instantly and solidify on the filter. That's why it's worth putting the whole thing in a box and heating with steam. Of course the pillow-cases get clogged up. When that happens you could either pour the warm wax into a second case (a bit dangerous and heavy too) -- or you could wait till the block has set hard (the next day) and peel off the dirty case and scrape down the wax before putting it into a clean one. This is an important part of beekeeping -- it's part of the process of recycling and accessing all that wonderful wax. Solar wax extractors just don't work here in Ireland (or, more accurately they work on one or two days in the year) and anyway they're too small for my needs -- so here's what I came up with.

How To Put Up Sheep Fencing Wire Easily Without A Strainer
 
02:55
Putting up sheep fencing isn’t difficult, especially with two people, but if you want to get the wire tight then this is a really good method. Yes, you could buy an expensive wire strainer – but they usually pull only one strand at a time so the fence gets distorted. You could tie one end of the wire to a tractor – but the tractor will be in the way by the hedge. So use this method and it’s easy. (Ok, so not everyone has a ratchet strap – but they’re still much cheaper to buy than a wire puller.) Hope this helps – please like and share if you know anyone else who might be interested. Thanks!

Taste-Testing Elephant Garlic and Ordinary Garlic
 
03:05
And so the answer is clear. Or is it? Some people questioned the validity of the test. There should have been some bread with no garlic. People should have eaten something neutral in between. More testers were needed. Etc., etc. In the meantime some people were convinced that one was more salty than the other (simply not true) – so what does that tell us about the quality of their taste-buds? And would badminton-players, rather than volleyballers, have given us a different result? In fact, are we any wiser at all?! Either way, we will grow some more of both this autumn and be very happy to have lots of yummy garlic to share. Thanks for watching.
Homemade Bowl-Turning Gouge From A Ring-Spanner To Avoid Kick-Back
 
05:12
I made a gouge from a ring spanner (wrench) because I don’t own a real wood-turning bowl-making gouge. And it worked. These are not finished bowls – they’re turned from green elm wood so they still need to dry out a lot. Rough-turning the bowls on a lathe first speeds up the drying process and means they are less likely to crack. In fact, a gouge probably isn't all that much to buy - but I didn't look very hard because I wanted to give this a try. I’m sure I haven’t tempered this gouge very well in the forge – I’m hoping I might get some advise on this from viewers – but it seems to hold an edge well, so it can’t be too bad. The homemade forge is so handy I would recommend everyone makes themselves one. This is the way I made mine - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j5YJCKofzo Yes, it’s a terrible thing to do to a spanner – I have no excuses, except they’re imperial and almost everything I have is metric. By the way, I have no idea how I’m going to put those plates back on the lathe… Here's our online store where you can see some of the craft things we make and sell.. http://www.wayoutwestemporium.com/ and here's our Patreon page.. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2761318&ty=h Copyright WayOutWest.

How To Grow Your Own Animal Food (Number One!)
 
03:20
Sugar beet needs cool damp conditions -- which is just what we have! It grows well and it's a good feed crop -- so why not grow some too? We use a root chopper and feed it to sheep, horses and pigs. We eat the tops too. It's a lot like turnips and fodder beet and swedes and manglewurzles -- but it has a higher sugar content. That's why it's normally grown for sugar and alcohol production. How to feed sugar beet to livestock -- basically it can be fed raw to ruminants and horses and boiled to pigs and poultry. Pigs and hens don't mind the mud, but it's not good for the others. We eat it like spinach -- in a stir-fry, or steamed lightly. The second in this series is about marrows and you can see it here.. http://youtu.be/wIYTKDYJ9A4 Here's our online store where you can see some of the craft things we make and sell.. http://www.wayoutwestemporium.com/ and here's our Patreon page.. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2761318&ty=h Copyright WayOutWest.

How To Make A Quick-Release Ring Roller (A What Now?)
 
04:33
Homemade metal-working roller for flat bar, round stock, square stock and some pipe. For making hoops, rings and scroll-work from copper, steel, aluminium, etc. I was surprised how easy this was to make. I did have the old car scissor jack and the scaffolding pipe so all it cost me was the castor wheels. I wish I'd made one years ago! I made this for the horsedrawn hearse project I'm working on. More on that soon. I used 1" wide castor wheels because that was the width of the stock I was using, but the bigger wheels are readily available and much stronger. I really think you could use this design for pipe and flat that's way bigger than you see in this film. I want to build a bigger one sometime and make my own polytunnel hoops. Of course, it you're using long or heavy lengths, you will have to support the ends or it will bend. But the same is true for rollers that work horizontally. And most pipe needs to have concave rollers or it will flatten. I will have to work on those.. : - ) Here's our online store where you can see some of the craft things we make and sell.. http://www.wayoutwestemporium.com/ and here's our Patreon page.. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2761318&ty=h Copyright WayOutWest.

How To Make Your Own Stone Pestle And Mortar (It’s Surprisingly Easy!)
 
02:31
Useful in the kitchen, and as beautiful as the stones you choose – how could you not want one of these? (I suspect they may make excellent chistmas presents too.) It would be easy to make a deeper hollow than I made – but I really don’t think it was necessary. Plus, it’s easier to clean when it’s shallow. Yes, this is a big heavy one – but if you want, just choose smaller stones. (Sorry, was that a bit obvious? But you wouldn’t believe some of the comments we get on our videos…) Copyright WayOutWest.

BioChar Pot Trials -- Second Results (Even More Interesting!)
 
03:09
Two months ago we started these trials. (Link below.) Something very interesting is happening and although it's early days still, it seems obvious what it is -- most of these plants like charcoal in the soil. Up to a point, at least. We're using soil straight from the field (together with charcoal in varying amounts) and OF COURSE we planted the same number of seeds at the same time in each pot. There's actually not much in charcoal that's of benefit to plants -- but it is a very special vehicle for adding nutrients. These were added when we made the charcoal into biochar by soaking it in a nutrient-rich tea. These results probably show how depleted the field soil is and how much it benefits from adding the nutrients. The difference in using biochar (instead of just nutrient tea) is that the biochar should be a much more permanent benefit to the soil. The soil structure is improved and the nutrients are retained within the structure of the charcoal so they shouldn't be washed out so readily. This is a trial involving Perpetual (Cut-and-come-again) Beet, Radish, Grass, Tomatoes and Parsley. Other seeds types were sown but they were dropped from the trials because of poor germination. (Old seed? Seed didn't like the charcoal? A mixture of the two?)

How To Store Marrows (Grown-Up Zucchini) Successfully For The Winter
 
02:07
Marrows are wonderful vegetables to grow and good food for humans and hens and pigs – but they’ll rot at the first sign of a frost. So they have to be stored carefully. We learned the hard way over a few years how to do this – but we’ve cracked it now! They are worth storing too – the pigs love to crunch on them and they don’t need them to be cooked – just toss the marrows in and watch the excitement.. Hope this helps – we wish someone had shown us earlier how to do this..

Planting Winter Oats -- Fail!

How To Make Thin Sheets Of Beeswax For Foundation, Starter Strips, Candles And Modelling.
 
05:29
Homemade foundation sheets are easy to make and really satisfying too. I just made a new set-up and this shows how I did it. The wax melter has to be big enough (obviously!) and finding something suitable could be your biggest challenge. 100% natural beeswax from our own hives is all I use. No additives at all. The important bit at the end makes all the difference if you want to use this in your hives or for modelling. Brittle wax is nearly useless but when it's malleable then you have a real alternative to shop-bought foundation sheets. Hope it works for you! (We'd appreciate it if you'd share this too, if you think it's worth it..) http://youtu.be/TKnkvaOQjsg This is the link to a video on using these sheets in hives.

No Dig Gardening. Interesting Experiment To Compare Three Mulches – And Full Results…
 
08:13
250 elephant garlic plants growing under 3 different mulches. And a control area with no mulch. That was the experiment. The results after a full growing season showed that the 10 best bulbs from under the sawdust (5 kg) weighed more than the ones from the straw pellets (4.5 kg) and the sand (4.5 kg). And they all out-weighed the un-mulched ones (2 kg). Now the next step to this experiment will be to compare the next crops – do the various mulches have a beneficial or detrimental effect on them? I’ll be putting some winter brassicas in that bed soon so maybe we’ll find out.. Ok, here are some important website links. Please check them out..

How To Make Your Own Un-Bleached Sheep or Goat Skin Rug
 
04:16
This is how we make really lovely sheepskin floor rugs - using only soap, salt, oxalic acid, washing soda and oil. They're so cheap and easy to make and you mostly just need household products to do it. There are different ways of curing, drying and tanning skins and fleeces, depending on what you want them for. But most use seriously nasty chemicals. Our method is simpler and much less toxic, and they end up perfect for floor rugs or for taking outside by the bonfire, but they are not soft enough for, say, making a coat (you'd need to tan them for that and that's a different process). So this is a really easy and inexpensive method and you end up with something lovely and warm and friendly -- but it's a little bit stiff too. Ok? The abattoir should just give you back the skins from your own sheep/lambs/goats/calves. And even if you don't have any sheep of your own, you should have no problem getting some -- the abattoir get next to nothing for them. Pick the best and cleanest you can though, and save yourself a lot of work. YOU'LL NEED: Salt -- the cheap and cheerful sort Washing Soda -- again cheap and cheerful Neatsfoot oil -- from your hardware shop or saddle shop Saddle soap -- from the same places. Oxalic acid -- through your chemist/drugstore or order online. This is the same acid that's found in rhubarb leaves so theoretically you could make your own, but it's very cheap to buy. You will also need: a large bath or barrel Wire brush/comb -- hardware shop or petshop Somewhere to hang the skins while they dry - which could be a week or more. The precise amount you use isn't absolutely critical. For each 2 gallon bucket of water, we use approximately: 1 kilo salt (about 2lbs) 1 cup of powdered oxalic acid Then later, for the first wash, 1 cup of washing soda crystals for each bucketful water.

Comparing Ordinary Garlic and Elephant Garlic - And How To Grow Them
 
04:58
Elephant garlic isn’t really a garlic apparently – but it sure looks like garlic and tastes like garlic and you can grow it like garlic, so let’s not worry too much about it's family classification. (I'm pretty sure it's not an elephant though.) You can plant onions and garlic in the spring (and we do), but the autumn-planted ones always do better and we can harvest them earlier in the summer too. This is a direct quote from the Wikipedia page about those little corms we found on the main bulbs.. “There are also much smaller cloves with a hard shell, called corms, which grow on the outside of the bulb (sort of like a hang-nail). Many gardeners often ignore these, but if they are planted, they will in their first year produce a non-flowering plant which has a solid bulb, essentially a single large clove. In their second year, this single clove will then, like a normal bulb, divide into many separate cloves. While it may take an extra year, it is desirable to plant these small corms (several can be produced by each bulb) and the harvest increased, though delayed a year (but will allow you to eat more of your main crop, having these "back up" bulbets growing into full-fledged elephant garlic, in their second year).” As you can see this video took ages to make (about 9 months!) but it's interesting to see the whole growing cycle in one go, isn't it? As always, we’d be grateful if you share this too – that’s how our channel grows. Thank you! Tim and Sandra.
Don't Buy Kale Seeds! (How To Save Your Own.)
 
01:51
Kale must be the most generous of vegetables -- it will willingly give you millions of seeds for absolutely nothing. All you have to do is leave them alone and they'll do the rest. Of course, what you get may not be exactly the same as the parent plant (because kale is shockingly promiscuous and will cross with all sorts of other brassicas) but, who knows, you may get something even better.

Bacon, Potatoes and Cabbage - Traditional Irish One-Pot Cooking Recipe.
 
02:59
I hope you like this recipe. We think it's delicious! It might help that we produce all the (main) ingredients ourselves, of course... People in Ireland have eaten this for centuries - although when times were tough, probably without the bacon (milk was often used instead). Is it necessary to say that all the ingredients are boiled until cooked? Bacon takes about 20 minutes/pound, potatoes take about 20 minutes and cabbage about 8 minutes. Enjoy!

How To Make Simple Sheeps' Milk Cheese!
 
02:33
How to make sheeps' milk cheese -- this has to be the quickest, easiest and tastiest cheese possible. This film shows how we make a really good cheese -- but here are some important points to bear in mind... 1. Cheese should be made with WARM milk and STERILISED equipment. 2. You'll need some RENNET and a cheese CULTURE to make the first batch. 3. Rennet is bought from a wholefood shop or chemist; cheese cultures can be bought online but are free too -- just use a small piece of a cheese that you like. 4. Save some whey each time you make cheese. THIS WHEY WILL CONTAIN BOTH THE RENNET AND THE CULTURE. 5. The whey will keep a couple of weeks in the fridge, or much longer in the freezer. Of course you could use goats' or cows' milk too, and it would still be good -- but perhaps not quite as good.. : - ) Ok, here are some important website links. Please check them out..

Repairing A Carriage Wheel Without Dismantling It
 
04:06
Wooden wheels are complicated to repair because the steel rim needs to be put on hot (it shrinks as it cools and tightens up all the joints). If the wheel has a rubber tyre as well, then the job becomes even more difficult because of the way those are fitted (the wire that runs through the tyre has to be hot-soldered together without melting the rubber). SO, if it is possible to make a repair to a spoke or a felloe without dismantling the wheel, then it has to be worth a try. This is how I did it, because only one felloe was rotten. The repair seems to be fine and practically invisible now that it is painted. (I forgot to put this up earlier(!) - so it hasn't been posted in sequence.

Using Homemade Wax Foundation Sheets And Starter Strips (In Rose Bee Hives)
 
05:40
Finally another beekeeping video. I apologise for the delay. Many people ask for them and I have lots more things I’d like to say about bees and beekeeping - but as you can maybe see from this one, they’re not that easy to make. Apart from bees climbing all over everything, wearing a veil makes it nearly impossible to see the little screen on our camera so I often spend five minutes filming the tree next to the hive, or my knee or whatever. The other reason is that when I’m with the bees I sort of lose track of time and focus completely on what I’m doing in the hive. The bees are powerfully hypnotic. Really. Often I’ve forgotten that I was supposed to be filming until the little ‘battery flat’ noise on the camera reminds me. But I managed this one – and I hope you find it interesting. For those who don’t know already, I use a different type of hive from most – the Rose Hive – which doesn’t use queen excluders. That means the queen can go where she likes and the bees can arrange their broodnest and stores as they choose in the hive. It makes sense to me that honeybees should be allowed to do what they like – after all, they surely know best how to be bees than any human could. In that spirit, I let them make whatever comb they want to too – except I do use full sheets of foundation in every second frame so they don’t stick combs together. There are a few more videos on this channel and on the Rose Hives website about my sort of beekeeping, if you’re interested. (www.rosebeehives.com) (And check out ‘The Rose Hive Method book too.) And of course, feel free to share and subscribe and comment if you like. Bees and beekeeping are my main thing – they have taught me so much about how the world works and I recommend anyone who hasn’t experienced them close up to take a gentle stroll down that fascinating path.

Confessions Of A Forgetful Beekeeper...

Really Quick And Simple Wooden Trinket Boxes
 
03:37
We were thinking of something else to sell on a market stall and came up with these. Are they jewellery boxes? Tea boxes? I don’t know. But they cost almost nothing and they took perhaps 20 minutes each to make from scratch. Anyone who's tried making little wooden boxes will know that they can be stupidly fiddly to make – especially putting on the hinges – so I wanted a different plan. This is it – and it really is pretty quick. Mostly because the bottom and two sides are made in one piece, and everything’s rough-sawn timber. The hinges are still the most tricky part – those pins have to go through in the right place or there will be a gap, or it wont close properly – but they’re easy enough. Just mark half the thickness of the lid when it’s both open and closed. Drill holes for the pins first or the wood will split. I thought the idea and method were worth sharing - even though these boxes are a bit boring really. But at least we got them ready in time for the market...

Why I'm Not A Commercial Beekeeper Anymore
 
05:19
Professional beekeeping is really hard work – but I gave it up very reluctantly. And this video is about the reasons I had to. Incidentally, varroa hasn’t been a problem at all, but foul-brood have also been a factor through the years. I suspect every hive in Ireland has it to some extent, it’s just that it manifests itself when the colony is struggling. And bees struggle when the weather’s bad. Why don’t I feed sugar to the bees? Because bees eat honey and honey is a lot more complicated than just sugar. Replacing a hugely complicated and balanced food source with litres of glucose syrup, just so you can collect more honey, really isn’t the way I want to work with my bees.

New Homemade Catamaran. Stitch And Glue Plywood Self-Build (It’s Easy But Quite Sticky)
 
10:11
Another catamaran?? Why not! They’re great fun, safe, easy to make and – with a bit of luck – they’re light enough for one person to carry around on their own. This is the “stitch and glue” version – and I think it looks pretty good. I might not bother with the glass-fibre cloth next time though – does it add much except weight? In case you missed the earlier builds – check out the other videos in the ‘Catamaran’ play list. I am learning a whole lot.. The mast and sails are from the Mirror dinghy that my grandfather built back in the 1970s – the rest of the boat is gone now. Any advice for me? (What have I done wrong this time??)

How To Clip An Old English Sheep Dog With A Matted Coat (And How They Get That Way!)
 
04:00
Yes, I should have oiled and sharpened the sheep shears first, but Tim wasn’t around and they were sharp enough. Also, I say that these dogs were bred for herding sheep – but really they were more of a guard dog than a drive dog. (Bob, though, is neither!) Bob came from a rescue centre and so we don’t know how old he is. Probably eight years old now, at least. And deaf, stiff, useless and annoyingly noisy sometimes. But we love him dearly. I try to shear him twice a year – and each time I do it, I say to myself, I must do this more often. We bought an expensive set of electric shears once – they didn’t work at all and are still in the back of the cupboard. They just couldn’t get through the dread-locks. Sheep shears work well though, but it still takes a long time because there’s just such a lot of him. (P.S. Of course we didn’t dock his tail. That’s the way he arrived. Some say he’s a Bobtail and never had a tail, but we just don’t know.)

How To Make Really Good Concrete Or Mortar In A Cement Mixer -- In Three Minutes!
 
02:33
This is really easy if you do things in the correct order -- so I made this little film to show you how. (So many people get it wrong -- simply because no one has shown them properly.) So this is a very boring film -- sorry about that - but at least it's quick. And I hope it helps you with your jobs. The cement bags here in Ireland weigh 25kgs. This is how we do things and we're very happy with the mixes we make -- but of course we're not taking responsibility for your concreting jobs. Check with a professional if you're doing something structural. Or look up the website of the cement manufacturer you're using. The concrete mix is 6:1 - perfect for floors, paths and footings, and the mortar mix (also 6:1) is perfect for building block or brick walls. (It works for stone walls too - but it must be MUCH dryer for that, obviously.) For rendering/plastering add some lime, and if you're rendering outside you might want to put in some water-proofer and less sand. It's not easy to see in the film - but the shovels are not heaped up to full capacity - they're just normally full. Each bag contains 6 standard shovelfuls, so half a bag contains 3. The 18 shovelfuls of sand make it 6:1. Hope that's clear! The plasticizer doesn't just make your mixes easier to use, it makes them stronger too, because the ingredients combine better. Have fun!

First Spring Inspection Of Bees In Rose Hives
 
04:26
I use Rose hives, and this is how I go about the first inspection of the year. Most of them need another box ahead of their spring build-up. With all the boxes the same size, and no queen excluders involved, you can put a new box wherever you like in the stack. I add them where they are needed most – at this time of the year that's above, or in the middle of, the brood nest. I also mark queens whenever I come across them. It just makes life easier later on in the year when they are harder to find.

How To Make Everlasting Soup!
 
02:15
Everlasting soup is what most people would have eaten most days of their lives, until relatively recently. Back then they might have called it pottage, but it was essentially the same thing -- a pot brought to boil over an open fire everyday, with new things added whenever they were available. Vegetables and plants as they came into season, a rabbit, maybe, or a piece of bacon. People forget that ovens are modern inventions, and roasting over an open fire is not easy, so the soup pot -- or cauldron -- was essential in most homes. So we're just doing what our ancestors took for granted -- and, as always, we can learn a lot from the old way. Here are some advantages of this method of cooking -- 1. REALLY cheap and easy -- remember you only have to add one new thing everyday. So no starting from scratch with meat and vegetables. 2. Very little washing up. 3. Tasty and nutritious. This is good food -- especially for the winter. 4. There's always a meal ready for unexpected visitors -- or if you're too tired to cook. Of course you must cook it up properly everyday to keep it safe. We mostly cook the new ingredient separately first, before adding to the main pot. And we add boiling water too (not cold). Store the pot in a cool place between meals. Also, don't let it get thick or it will stick. Remember it's soup, not stew! Will it really last indefinitely? -- Yes, provided you're careful with it and follow the rules -- keep food either cool or hot and never leave it standing around in the warm. Here are some suggestions for things you could add to your pot - bones, meat, vegetables, turnip, nettles, ginger, tomatoes, pasta, croutons, suet, dumplings, garlic, ginger, sausage, potatoes, herbs, salt, pepper, leeks, onions, lentils, beans, peas, chickpeas, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery... (Avoid things that go to a mush like rice.) Bon Appetit!

Saw Your Own Planks At Home – Miniature Logging For Everyone (No Bandsaw Needed)
 
03:01
These little logs make excellent little planks – and in a couple of months they’ll be dry and then the fun really begins. I’m thinking maybe spice shelves, or a small bathroom cabinet, or perhaps picture frames... any other ideas? Of course, it’s dangerous to pull heavy logs over an open saw – BE VERY VERY CAREFUL!! Can I suggest, if you try this yourself, use the thickest, heaviest blade you have, that’s not going flex and start burning. Ok, here are some important website links. Please check them out..
