Woodworking 4Home Plans and Designs for Woodworking Projects

©2010 Shanna Ohmes

When you are running your homestead, whether it includes 40 acres or your urban backyard homestead, you are going to need a good set of plans and designs for projects around the home and your animals and garden. 

In most all the places we have lived, my husband and I have built barns, sheds, lots of fences, rabbit hutches, chicken houses, nesting boxes, raised beds for the garden, goat milking stands, hay feeders and countless more projects for the barnyard. 

Inside the home, we have made a pantry, shelves for the cellar (for all those beautiful jars of food!), book cases, a coffee table, wall decorations, flooring and more. 

What if you had a source for all the homesteading and home woodworking projects that you could access in one place without spending hundreds of dollars on books and magazines?   Well, the good folks at Woodworking 4Home have done just that.  Even if you are a complete beginner, the step by step plans are easy to follow and understand.

Here are just a few of the designs and plans from Woodworking 4Home that you could use for you homestead:  plans for carts, bee hives, cabin, book case, carport, birdhouse, chair, containers, drill press, fence, garden, cutting board, greenhouse, playhouse, planter, gun cabinet, lathe, kitchen projects, shed, rabbit hutch, chicken house, wind generator, farm shop and more than I can list!  I wish we had access to this when we started our homestead years ago!

Incredible Chickens: The Complete Guide to Raising Chickens at Home In Your Backyard!

Have you thought about raising your own chickens?  Fresh eggs from your own backyard chickens are healthier than factory farmed eggs from the supermarket.  When you let your chickens roam and eat bugs, grass and seeds these eggs are richer and nutrient dense.  Don’t believe it?  Crack open one store bought egg and one pastured egg.  The first thing you will notice is it takes a slightly harder “whack” to crack open the farm egg.  That’s because the shell is thicker to protect the embryo inside.  The 2nd thing you will notice is the deep orange color of the yolk compared to the pale yellow yolk of the store bought egg.  The 3rd thing you notice is the taste.  Ahhh, there’s no comparison!

Even if you’ve never raised chickens before, you can learn how.  They are easy to keep.   In fact, chickens and rabbits were the main producers of protein kept in backyards during World War II when food was rationed.  They are easy keepers, quiet (as long as you don’t have a rooster) and efficient producers for a self-reliant lifestyle.
