I've had to take a hiatus from modeling for a bit and haven't been keeping up with the forums, but I had to check in and see what Bob's up to. Excellent work, as usual!

Thanks Ray, I keep hoping you will get back into the model building mode but I know you have some
other time consuming interests. I can still keep hoping though.

The building front is just beautiful, Bob. I particularly like the door hardware detail.

Thanks Russ. I usually make my own door knobs and handles but in this case those were one of
the very few things not scratch built, they are metal castings from Ozark Miniatures painted
brass. I had a pack of them and decided to use them.

Thanks Ted.

Most of you know that I like to make my interiors in a removable "drawer" so I can pull
it out and work on it. Here's an early shot of this one. This structure was designed to be
quite narrow and that has limited the room I have to build all the machinery I will need to
make toothpicks. I will be making small versions of everything and I hope they will fit.

That stairwell takes up a lot of room too.

It's a good thing I'm not making Bamboo skewers.

Fred, could be much the same

You know, this whole thing started out as mainly a joke project, a factory to pull a large log
into one end and put out a toothpick out at the other.

However, as always happens with me, I had to do some research and I really found out a lot
about toothpick making. I have been able to come up with somewhat what the business end
of each machine looks like but for the most part I will have to "wing" it. I will also
have to make the machines smaller than real life so that I can fit them into this
structure (I hope).

Here is a list of the stations I will try to portray:




Here is a trial layout that I am shooting for but things may have to change, will have to
see how small I can make the machines and still look believable.



Look I have completed station 1 !!!!!!


The logs.



I have started making a light crane to be used to transfer the logs from the log pile to the
debarker and from the debarker to the unravellig machine.

Bob, that's going to be a super factory!

If space gets tight maybe you can squeeze by with just a table and chair for Charlie to sit at while he counts and packages the toothpicks by hand into boxes at stations 7 & 8. :)
Boxes can be stored under the table.

Since you are going the extra mile on this model - or at least the ~2.56 inch toothpick length - here are two bits to consider (or not) :
1. In the U.S.A. round wooden toothpicks are made from white birch.
B. There is another station in the process that bleaches the birch to give the wood a more uniform color. Maybe Charlie could dunk the peeled strips into a bucket of dilute Clorox. :)
