Darcy and I are Christians and we run our home stead accordingly. We are more or less Modern Homesteader's . But we like doing some things the old way when we can. We like working with our hands, and we like trying to find a better way of doing things. But It usually turns out that the old way is best. Who would of thought right?---- If you like what you see please FOLLOW us on our journey building our HOMESTEAD----

The Tools We Use On Our Homestead
This is a short list of tools and thing we use everyday here at Two Cedars Micro Farm.
of the most valued tools we have on our homestead is a post driver, I have used
a sledge hammer to drive post but never what you could call successfully.
are very useful tools also. You just never know just what for, when, or why
you'll need a good rope.
A cable puller ( or
what we called come-a-long when I was a young pup) has gotten me out of trouble
good Garden Tiller is indispensable on a homestead. Ours get a good work out
good dependable chain saw. Emphasis on dependable !!
I always keep two sharp axes, a double bit and a single bit on hand for small limb removal and wood splitting. (Darcy loves to split wood)
And everyday yard tools.
What homestead could survive without a wheelbarrow and a utility trailer?
This is Darcy's toy, a band saw.
Every homestead needs a drill press.
Any guesses as to what this is? It's a shave horse. I use it to shape handles and things like that.
A good table saw.
This is my work bench.
This is a small homemade forge. it is made from a brake drum and a small blower.
And what homestead would be complete with out a scrap pile. I can't count the times I have scavenged nuts and bolts from this pile of scrap. And sometimes I might need a piece of scrap metal to mend or make something.
