Started the day with some cleaning up and pancakes, good way to start any day.

My sketching and drafting skills are a bit rusty... been trying to illustrate the latch in half scale in an isometric view. Very messy. Going to have to get my hands on the project, don't think I can get much more out of drawing.

I searched for the right hinges for hours yesterday comparing types and prices. Waiting for some answers from the manufacturer, might be able to order them tomorrow.

I spent some time today preparing for some chicken soup from scratch tomorrow too. Need more meaty bits in my diet. I'm going to dream about fatty, brothy, hearty soup.

During an observation walk I found two little mushrooms coming up on the Tipi berm. Interesting they grew considering the humidity is around 30% during the day.


My observation is that they fruit after a drying event. Possibly because the mycelium can't progress any further and fruiting assures continuation by spores incase it dries out completely.



I checked them the next day and they were already drying out.

I don't think I'm understanding what you mean. The bow would start straight or slightly flexed, just enough pressure to keep the latch stays out. Then the handle cranks the latch, loading the bow but only traveling an inch or two. Just enough for the latch to clear the door jamb. I think the distance of travel can be better modified by increasing or decreasing the size of the diameter of the gear.

I was just worried that the bow would run out of flex or travel before you get the movement distance you desired.  If that was the case, two bows could be a solution.  If the bow can handle that amount of deflection, no problem.

Nice easy day here. Warm enough for shorts. Spent the first part of the day building a set of cubbies for Cooper Cabin. Jen drew the plan for them and I put them up. It's the same style Dez built for the FPH. Three frames of 1x4s stacked in front of each other. They are sturdy without using too many screws.

Found some prints I think might be a cat of some kind. The print is about 2.5 to 3 inches wide.

Rained a bit in the early evening, caught a big rainbow forming over the mountains.

And I'm just sitting down to have my first bowl of chicken soup for dinner. Gotta go.
