Homemade Chicken Incubator V2 - SketchUp drawings

This year i've made another incubator and i've made some changes from my first build. It has the same elements like: light bulb, computer fans, light dimmer, etc. but i've change the placement of them.
So... my first incubator had the water tray on the left side of the box in this build the water trays are placed on the bottom and i have moved the eggs upper.

Greenhouse update

This year i've made some changes to my greenhouse: the first change was to replace the plastic foil from the roof with a new one. While the plastic foil was off from the roof i've made some changes to the wooden frame of the greenhouse last year the sides could be raised and lowered with a long board that held the plastic foil for the sides but this year i've made some panels (windows) that can be lowered or raised as needed.

Metal work to do woodworking

My latest project was a table for my grandma and for this project i had used most of my power tools. The project began with purchasing the wood and here is not easy or cheap to buy planed wood boards so i bought rough lumber for this project.
First step was to put a straight edge on the boards for the table top and for this i used my small power planer after this i ripped the boards on my table saw to the maximum width that i could get from them.

Grow chickens - food and medicine

We have a step-by-step program with our chickens from the moment they hatch until we put them with the rest of the chickens that we have.
First step is to select the eggs for incubating process and for this step we are using a led flashlight to be able to see inside the eggs.
At the end of the incubating period the chickens are placed in a cardboard box with one light bulb over them to keep them warm. In the water we are putting vitamin: A, D3, E  for 3-5 days. For the first 7 days we are feeding them corn flour mixed with boiled egg yolk.

New table saw - new project: table saw stand

When i've built my first greenhouse i bought a table saw but it had a lot of problems and some of them i had tried to fix them but i've started to work more and more with wood and i said that is time to get a better table saw.
My new table saw is Makita MLT100 and i'm very delighted about this saw and how it works, how accurate it is (i had to tweak it a little bit to get it to this stage).

Woodworking project - table for my grandma

Lately i've started to gather woodworking tools and do small projects with wood.
Not so long ago i've overheard my grandma that she wants to buy a new table so i've said that this is a good opportunity to practice what i've seen on youtube and other blogs.

And this is what i have done :)
