Thanks Guys,

Mike, I have had TONS of puns cast against my work but "LOG RHYTHM" has to be near the top.

Dave, There are about a dozen different ways logs were cut to interlock at the ends but I'm not that
good. I added extra pieces to look like they interlock, it's hard to tell the difference.

Bob, I played with Lincoln logs as a kid, but they don't even come close when comparing to your Santos logs.
A notch above the rest!

Really a nice job interlocking the logs. They look great.

Bob, if you made that log building a couple of stories higher, you'd have an interlocking tower.

Very, very nicely done.

I sent you a PM.

Dave, Greg, Jerry, and Pete, thanks for your comments.


Here's that log structure with two heavy coats of gesso. A quick sanding will get rid of those imperfections.

That's going to look great sitting atop the stone walls.

Thanks Ray.

Between turkey and football there was not much work (if any) done yesterday on the LP&N RR.
I do have the wheel painted.



In this shot you can see the bearing that supports the outer end of the axle. That's styrene and of course the wheel is wood.

Bob,

That looks really good. I like the color and the rusty bits. It looks like it would actually work.

Bruce and Mike, thank you.

Here's a couple of shots of the crusty old log portion of the structure painted.

Bruce and Ray, Thanks for your comments.

I got a sub roof on it and made the double doors on the ground floor. The upper floor is still
separate to make it easier to work on but they will be joined soon.

Bob,
Lookin' Good!
The building has a nice, well aged, weathered look which I rarely see on your work. I like it!!
The doors also look terrific.
Dave
