    Pedestal greenhouse or general-purpose table

    Pedestal greenhouse or general-purpose table

    Straight table legs get in the way and are fragile without lots of bracing. A pedestal base with 45 and 30/60 geometry uses 40% less lumber than a 6-legged table, is self-adjusting on un-level ground, and is much stronger than a 6-legged table (and MUCH stronger than a 4-legged table!). It uses a combination of tension and compression to keep the table top from deforming under load. It allows tables to be placed closer together, as a wheelbarrow can run between tables beneath the table top.

    Finger Weeder

    Finger Weeder

    Finger weeders are a cultivation tool which use ground driven, rubber, star shaped discs to disturb the soil very close to the cultivated crop. Their main advantage is their ability to reach in row weeds. They do not damage the cultivated crop because of the soft rubber which they are made of. They are best for transplanted or well-established crops because they can damage smaller crops.

    Cheap Electric Thresher???

    Cheap Electric Thresher???

    Don't get me wrong, I love all the bicycle powered tools being built but I was hoping to find something cheaper and easier. This led me to purchase a Sun Joe leaf Mulcher (https://www.amazon.com/Sun-Joe-SDJ616-Shredder-13-Amp/dp/B00EUU044S). I plan on threshing oats, bell beans and tillage radish seed pods once they are bone dry. I think it has potential to do the trick.

    Agricultural Entries and Translations from the Encyclopédie, 1751

    The Encyclopédie was the first encyclopedia to include contributions from many named contributors, and it was the first general encyclopedia to lavish attention on the mechanical arts, such as metallaria (blacksmithing, metallurgy), agricultura (agriculture), vestiaria (tailoring, weaving), architectura (architecture, masonry), mercatura (trade), coquinaria (cooking). “This is a work that cannot be completed except by a society of men of letters and skilled workmen, each working separately on his own part, but all bound together solely by their zeal for the best interests of the human race and a feeling of mutual good will.” —Diderot The following sections first published in 1751 embody many of Farm Hack's ideals.
