Looking food, Bruce. I like the way you've braced for the roof. I wish I had seen that before I finished my bracing.

Thanks, George. That has become my 'go to' way to support roofs. If the span is smaller, I use smaller bracing material.

Thanks, Pete.

The smoke vent is on and so is a doorknob for the 'people door'. (That is a piece of .020 brass wire peened off just a bit and touched up with a silver Sharpie.)

Just working on a sign now, but also starting on the next project.

Bruce barn is looking good. All it needs is a "SEE ROCK CITY" sign. Great work.

Bruce,
Roof turned out nice. I like the smoke stack and door knob as well.
I have always thought about peening the ends of small wire, but wasn't sure how to go about it.
How did you do that?

Scott, in the past I have put the brass wire in my vice (vertically) with just a little bit sticking above the jaws. Then I tapped it lightly with a tack hammer until I got the look that I liked. I did something similar this time, but simply held the wire in a pair of pliers instead.

I decided that the barn needs an adjacent corral.

I started by building a jig that would allow me to make 2-rail fencing.

Here is the first piece of fencing coming out of the Jig.

Bruce,

A corral will be a welcome enhancement. And with a good weathered gray.

I like your method for making doorknobs, particularly because they look close to scale. I plan to try it in the future.

Good way to make a door knob! The fence is coming along very nicely.
