It's too cold to be sitting at the beach in NJ Jerry!

I see bench time in your future...

Are you saying Toms River, NJ had nice weather until just now?

Jerry,

That is really nice work, and I like the look of the stain on the inside walls. Do you have a special recipe or is it a secret? It enhances an overall look of a new engine house, enough that you won't need lighting. You'll have to polish those tools to match the walls.

Howdy Jerry,

The structure is looking great. It's a very nice home for locomotives. I am sure they will love it!

I too, am interested in the stain formula you used for the inside wood. On the structures I build, the raw basswood looks a little too bright.

Persist,
Mike

Philip thanks for the nice compliment!

Carl not really it was over a month ago. Guess I was just lazy!!

Rich Always appreciate when you stop by to see my work and comment.

Mike thanks for looking in and the kind remark.

For you and Rich that is just Minwax Golden Oak stain.

Frank one thing at a time. Glad you stopped by to keep me on my toes.

Jerry, nice to see you back at work on this once again!
It sure is going to be a beautiful place to keep your engines in.
So what's going to be your next step?

Jerry had to sneak these pictures in before we have dinner together on Friday.
Well played Jerry.

Now the pressure is on for me to get something done before Friday.
