Notice how all the floorboard joints have additional "dirt"
Only thing I am curious about is the length of some of the flooring?
Looks like some really long boards in there? How long are the longest ones?

Thanks Andy.

Marty, The longest boards are as long as the building. I plan to go back later and score in more ends after I see what will show.

Once again life got in the way and slowed things down. I did finish the windows. They were made in two sets with the "glass" sandwitched inbetween. I'm glad there are only three windows planned.

I also built this Banta kit to include in the mill. It is what Mr Butzer started his business with and he likes to keep it around.

Windows are excellent.
So actually you made six windows and put the glass between them. Can't believe you lined them up that perfect.

Like the color of the outside wall.

An a great little table saw from Banta. Beautiful job doing and painting it.

I'd say everything is excellent. Your making of the wall, both the outside and inside is absolutely stunning. Your master perfectly the coloring of wood.

Roland,
That table saw is a gem. The color of the wall both inside and out are perfect. I wish I had your patience and skills.

Thank you. I like showing photos because I enjoy seeing the work of all of you and hope you all enjoy mine. The paint on the outside wall is just A&I with craft paint wiped on with a rag. Then I went over the whole thing with sandpaper.

Jerry, The windows were built right in the wall. Not that hard.

Larry, You have found out my secret. I am in no rush to finish anything. I just enjoy the build and sooner or later it gets finished. The table saw took 5 evenings.

Roland.

That table saw is "so good". ( it's on my bucket list )

I also decided to weather and "score in" floor board cuts at a "later" stage ( on uncompleted projects ).... when I finish adding all the details.

Well done mate

Roland, nice steady progress. Really like the saw as well. The weathered shading on the interior wall looks great. Chalk? Pat

Pat, Yes the coloring is chalk. I have to keep things fairly simple because I am quite color blind.
