An Old Chair from my family's AncestryThe chair was obviously handmade. There were a lot of broken pieces which I was able to redo. The caning was not as big of a challenge as I thought it would be, with the help from the Internet, I found plenty of pointers and supply houses.

My mind was constantly on the person who made the chair and the tools they would have used compared with the tools and resources I have available, electricity being the prime commodity. I was thinking about all the mothers in my ancestry who rocked their babies using this chair. My guess is, from the family I talked with, the chair was made sometime in the later 1800's.

Screech owl nesting box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Screech owl nesting boxThe screech owl is a misnomer, it makes a horse-like whinny instead. This box is made with cypress. You can hang it as low as 10 feet off the ground. If you have squirrels you might need to wrap the tree above and below with sheet metal, and maybe even put a metal sheet on the roof so they can't jump down from above.The plans are here: https://www.audubon.org/news/how-build-screech-owl-nest-box
The dimensions are in the pdf here: https://nas-national-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/screech-owl-nest-box.pdf
