Cutting board

Forgot to mention that I made a cutting board from scrap wood this weekend.

I still had a piece of pretty enough and sufficiently heavy kitchen countertop wood lying around that was left over from building my shop workbench. I didn’t really know what to do with it, so last weekend I converted it into a new cutting board.


Next attempt on curing meat at home

Since the last batch worked out so beautiful, I have started another one but this time three times as much. The procedure is always the same:


New Batch of Sausages

Man, this is gonna be a large gallery. I made a new batch of sausages today, following my basic recipe – we hope to have the one or the other grill party here with some friends. Not everything went straight, but in the end, it worked out fine.


Self Made Bevel Grinding Jig

I made myself a reasonable jig for grinding bevels on my knives. It’s very hard to do that with bad or wiggly jigs (that I had before) and – for a non-smith like me – virtually impossible to do only by hand. This is the result:


Product Review: Soil tester

I like bullshitting around about hatching seedlings and grow various plants indoors and in my garden. But the one with the real green thumb in this house is my wife. So I, for my part, have to rely on technical utilities in order not to either drown or dry out my windowsill greens.

This is what I use (available on amazon). It can tell you the soil’s moisture (cool and important), the ph-value (who cares?) and the amount of sunlight (couldn’t care less) for your plants.

Note: I don’t have any affiliate-link or something the like to Amazon (I suppose they would laugh out loud if I came up to them with that). I post this here simply because it’s useful to me and that’s where I got it from.


Meat curing is done

Three weeks ago I began curing some meat just in the fridge, without smoking. Today, after 24 days I think it’s done so lets try it. It has lost more than 35% of it’s weight (the goal was 310g, it is 305 g now), it is firm and has no unpleasant odor.


Chili Ramen

A Simple Ramen Dish made from chicken soup and my homemade chili oil. This is way better than the industrial ramen packages.


Axe makover

O.K. Call me mad… nuts… crazy… I want to try an Axe-makover. I had this hatchet lying around in my garage, cheap, blunt, neglected and dirty. Aaaand I want to turn it into some object resembling a viking battle-axe (something looking roughly  like this).


At least I’m trying…

And for someone like me, this is exhausting…


“No” is a complete and reasonable sentence. It doesn’t need any explanation nor justification.
