Howdy folks,

This is a continuation of the original build thread for a Choctaw Lumber Company logging camp kitchen (http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=47400&whichpage=1).

This thread will focus on the accompanying dining structure. The foot print and size will be a duplicate of the kitchen, except for window and door placement, which have been modified to bring the hungry workers in one door and out the other.

This version will have an interior including heating stoves, kitchen warming stove and oven, camp tables, table clothes, dishes, coffee pots, etc.

According to the head cook, the plan is to bring meals from the kitchen to the diner, staging food on the stoves and tables, then plating them for delivery to the hungry workers.

Since this structure is like all structures on the Choctaw Lumber Company, it is not electrified and relies on kerosene lanterns for light. Wood is used for both the cooking and heating stoves.

This post should kick it off and put the onus on me to get with it and build something!

Happy rails,
Mike Corley

Howdy folks,

Progress has been slow lately, but getting back on track.

Last week I decided on an approach for putting pot bellied stoves in a structure with a removable roof. The stack is split in two parts. One goes from stove to ceiling and the other from ceiling through the roof.

Locating the stoves and roof openings was a bit of a challenge until I used a plastic rod, dipped in paint and aligned vertically to mark the location for the stove. The photos tell the story.

Rod dipped in paint

Rod aligned and pushed to the floor

Rod leaves grey dots to mark the stove location

I'm working on the tables and benches now. I think I'll use 3D printed table since it will be covered by a gingham table cloth, photos soon.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I used a regular hole punch to make these holes, but ordered leather punch for the next time, I hope it works better. Alas, all will be hidden.

Have fun,
Rick Posted - 09/28/2019 : 7:20:49 PM
Mike, you got this.

I remember cutting the holes for chimneys on my engine house.
I was nervous about it but Fredrick showed me a trick to cutting the holes the right shape and size.
Michael Hohn Posted - 09/28/2019 : 5:02:33 PM
We share a dislike for drilling holes in completed roofs. I've never messed up bad; nevertheless I just hate it.

Needing to install a stove in one of my structures, Iíll be watching what you do.

Howdy folks,

Progress made, a bit.

First: Jerry, Philip, Rick, Carl and Michael, thank you for the encouragement.

This week I worked on stoves, chimneys and roof openings. Once again, it is a lot tougher when the interior is furnished.

The first step was aligning the stoves with the smoke stacks. After several fails, I decided to drill holes in the stoves, glue in a guide pins, and use that configuration to measure and cut roof openings. The tricky bit will be deciding where to cut the stacks so that part is attached to the structure and part is attached to the roof.

Here is a photo of the stoves in primer with guide pins, stack in test fits, and primed storm collars and attic insulation shields.

I always dread cutting holes in the roof, but the storm collars cover the holes.

Well, that's it for now. Next up will be installing the chimney stacks with storm collars and attic insulation shields.

Have fun,
Michael Hohn Posted - 09/24/2019 : 7:08:33 PM
Very fine work.
Carl B Posted - 09/24/2019 : 3:10:10 PM
Well done Mike!
Rick Posted - 09/24/2019 : 3:01:01 PM
You're doing a great job on this build Mike.
Thanks for the update.

Looks great Mike!!

Howdy folks,

Philip, thank you for your kind words about Rose.

Have made a bit more progress:

Large storage room door completed. Mule shoes for handles, but they are fragile and one has moved. Going to use ACC to strengthen them.

Store room interier wall completed.

Clerestory open windows and screens installed in two locations. The screen is on the inside and a metal rod holds the windows open.

That's it for now. Stove pipes are next then the structure will be complete. Then on to details.

Have fun,
Philip Posted - 09/18/2019 : 08:12:17 AM
Sorry about your pup. Pets always break my heart. Thanks for the update.

Howdy folks,

Mike, Rick, Jerry, Philip, Rich, Carl, and Mike thanks for your comments.

I had planned to vacation on the coast this week, but an ailing dog kept me home. I was going to paint a few detail castings. Here is a photo of one batch in primer.

The work room partition, clerestory open windows, and structure end doors were installed, but I don't have photos yet.

The dining hall is just about finished except for smoke stacks which are another challenge because of the removable roof. Fun!

Have fun,

Nice progress Mike, and have to love those lamps. Now, if I can only find a way to make up HO scale oil lamps.

The handled cutter with Stanley blade, is correctly called a WALL PAPER KNIFE. Its used to cut the wall paper at the top where it meets the ceiling. Been using one for years, my favorite tool.

Fantastic build, love it !!!!! Gotta look up the ORGANZA material for the screening in the windows, that is a great touch.
