With Jay's help, tilted back Big Chippin's chute to get access to the cutter head and chip breaker. Pretty sure that chute is made out of 1/8" steel and weighs 300+lbs. It was a struggle.

Something has gone awry with this 1/4" mandrel. That it occurred with a hand drill tells you how my wrist feels right now.

Kids helped frame out the gables today. Only required one trip to town for lumber, screws, and root beer floats.

Major blackberry removal today. All the fresh dirt in the photo had 4' tall blackberries. 60" brush mower and loader with tooth bar made all that a 4h job.

Made test rafters for the playhouse today. Tried 6/12 and 9/12 pitches. Thinking 9/12 looks better.

Rain let up early this morning so today was a perfect day to grade a site for the playhouse and lay a foundation.

Building a playhouse with the kids. Might unintentionally be building a tiny house instead.

Really need to figure out a better chute for Big Chippin'. Filled the truck bed but dumped 6" of chips on the ground, roof, hood, ...

Bought a preheater. Reworking TQFP-100 with an exposed pad is a breeze now.

Today's trebuchet progress: frame mostly built. Need to work out pouch design and quick release.

Planning a trebuchet build with my kids. Started with some drawings and calculations.
