I think my nose print would be on that glass too. Cherry shelves, cherry display case, cherry cough drops, cherry candy, all goes together :)

Thanks Bill, you and Greg can raid the candy case together and get all sticky and puney.

Here is the "furniture" part of the soda fountain. Like the candy case, all the little details will come later.



It will sit about here.



I scrounged through my collection of old leftover cast parts from previous builds and
I think I have found enough parts to make three bar stools (never throw extra castings
away, they usually find use in a later project).

Next will be the magazine rack, the window displays, and I hope some sort of pattern
medicine display if I can find room. A little shop like this one sure fills up quickly.

Bob,

Once again youíre displaying your unerring eye for color and design. I particularly like the stain you are using for furniture and trim.

Mike

Thanks for your comments Fred and Mike.

Mike, no stain, a clear satin varnish over cherry.

Beautiful showroom. Mr. Aleesi must be proud of his pharmacy...only the best will do!
My kudos to the furniture maker.

That is beautiful furniture Bob'. I can't wait to see the final reveal once the shop is completely furnished and stocked...will you have any customers picking up their "powders'...

I always thought when I was a kid, and someone said, "Aw go take a powder", they meant, to get lost. But actually they literately were referring to ingesting a powder.. Aspirins, before tablet form'.. You know this, but other readers may not..

Dave and Ted, thanks for your comments.

Here's the old magazine rack.



Here it is approximately where it will end up, filled with authentic for the period magazines.

What!! No Model Railroader?

I do see Model Builder, so Iíll be satisfied with that.

Excellent work. It looks better constructed than some in real life.

Mike

Mike, Dang, I thought I had a Model Railroader there. I'll have to fix that.

Carl, nothing but first class for Mr. Alessi.

Thanks Bruce.

Mike, mystery solved. The distributor dropped off the newspapers this morning and there's the
stack of Model Railroaders. The previous issue was sold out.
