How to build a Chicken Coop

Included are 1)Professionally drafted, scaled construction documents of the coop; and 2)A complete building material list. You can take the material list to Home Depot or Lowe's and get all the materials you need to build the coop.

I designed many coops for my chickens before arriving at this design. It is optimized to be cheap, portable, easy to maintain and easy to build. I have helped friends with no prior building experience and I am confident that this design could be built by pretty much anybody.
How to build a Toddler Bed

This Kindle eBook describes how to build a toddler bed using easy to follow instructions, with pictures I took while constructing the bed. Also included are dimensioned and scaled plans and a complete material list! This eBook has been specially formatted for the Kindle.

I designed and built a toddler bed for my own son. This set of plans describes the process, so you can sure it is a sturdy design. It is optimized to be cheap, easy to build and to efficiently use standard lumber, like dimensional 2x4s and 4x8 plywood. In addition, the material list specifically chooses materials that can easily fit into a normal car. The entire process is fairly simple including about a dozen cuts, so I am confident that this design could be built by pretty much anybody. You could build the entire thing with just a screwdriver and a handsaw.

The bed has a footprint of 2'-10" wide by 4'-7.5" long and a maximum height of 2'-4". It's designed to fit a standard crib mattress (the opening will fit a mattress that is 2'-4" wide by 4'-4.5").
How to build a Skateboard Ramp

This Kindle eBook describes how to build a skateboard ramp using easy to follow instructions, with detailed pictures of each step. Also includes dimensioned and scaled plans and a complete material list! This version of the eBook has been specially designed for the Kindle

I designed and built this skateboard ramp and it has been heavily used. This set of plans is optimized to be cheap, easy to build and to efficiently use standard lumber, like dimensional 2x4s and 4x8 plywood. In addition, the material list specifically chooses materials that can easily fit into a normal car. The entire process is fairly simple, requiring nothing more than a handsaw and a screwdriver, so I am confident that this design could be built by pretty much anybody.

The total cost of a half-pipe would be around $550, with a quarter-pipe at half of that ($275). You could beat those prices by going to a local lumber yard.

Guide to Building an Ethanol Still

The process of creating ethanol is fairly simple. This Kindle eBook describes how to create a still to allow you to convert fermenting fruits into ethanol. This version of the eBook has been specially designed for the Kindle.

While a top-of-the-line still may be constructed out of stainless steel, this can be cost-prohibitive for use at home. Instead the guide details how to build a copper version using off-the-shelf tubing and connectors that you can pick up at a local big box store (i.e. a Home Depot or Lowe's). The process is straightforward and is illustrated with over a dozen schematics. No prior experience is needed to build a still, the guide describes exactly how to do this in terms that anybody can understand. A few tools are needed (such as a saw and a drill), but inexpensive versions can be purchased if you don't have them handy.

The guide also goes over relevant legal matters in the US, describing how such a still can be legally used.
