Projects are arranged in order from simplest (fine for a beginner) to the most challenging. Finally, the book features tutorials from the author (a great knitting teacher), explaining special techniques: how to apply any appliqué, how to do the stem stitch, how to embroider "eyes" on the Bunny and Lamb, and 14 more.

In today's high-tech society, even the most advanced devices and systems are not fail-safe. Tools can break or wear out, batteries can go dead, and all sorts of malfunctions can render the modern conveniences we rely on totally useless. If quick replacements of failed items are not readily available, the ability to improvise and adapt in the workshop suddenly becomes very practical.

James Ballou, author of the best-selling Long-Term Survival in the Coming Dark Age, dramatically expands on the popular home workshop material in his first book to present a "makeshifter's" way of building and repairing things with only a pile of raw or salvaged materials, your hands and your mind. In this fascinating new book, he presents a wide range of unconventional, remarkably creative home workshop skills, including:

  • HOMEMADE TOOLS-Make your own hammers, drills, screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, saws, files, chisels, vises and clamps.
  • EXPEDIENT REPAIRS-Perform sturdy repairs with ordinary glue, tape, cord, wire, dowels, nuts and bolts.
  • MAKESHIFT CONSTRUCTION-Construct all sorts of functional items out of coat hangers, old car parts, 2-by-4s, wooden dowels, nails, rebar, coffee cans.
  • USEFUL PROJECTS-Build a homemade forge out of an old barbecue; handle simple soldering jobs with a road flare; perform quick weld repairs with car batteries, jumper cables and a pair of pliers.

Ballou also gives extensive instruction in makeshift metalworking, practical calculating skills, resourceful salvaging, plus dozens of practical tips for the craftsman or handyman who might need this information in an emergency or who simply enjoys learning about alternative ways to handle home workshop projects.

The Small-Scale Dairy includes everything you need to know in order to successfully produce nourishing, healthy, farm-fresh milk. Whether for home use, direct sale to the consumer, or sale to an artisanal cheesemaker, high-quality raw milk is a delicate, desirable product. Successful and sustainable production requires the producer to consider and tackle many details, ranging from animal care to microbiology to good hygienic practices-and, for those with commercial aspirations, business plans, market savvy and knowledge of the regulations.

Applicable to keepers of cows, goats or sheep, The Small-Scale Dairy offers a holistic approach that explores the relationships between careful, conscientious management and the production of safe, healthy and delicious milk. A historical overview offers readers a balanced perspective on the current regulatory environment in which raw milk lovers find themselves.

Included are options for designing a well-functioning small dairy, choosing equipment and understanding myriad processes-such as the use of low-temperature pasteurization where raw milk sales are prohibited. Whether you have a one-cow home dairy, a 50-goat operation or are simply a curious consumer, The Small-Scale Dairy is an accessible and invaluable resource for achieving your goals.
