  • The Lounge at Butzer's Mill (c1930)

    While laying in the hospital last weekend, tethered to an IV and staring numbly (dumbly) at the TV, an idea popped into my head. Why not build an early version of the lounge in a small section of the sawmill. After that things went off like fireworks in my head. I have all sorts of ideas and hope you guys can add a few more. It should be fun, and if someone else feels like joining in, the more the better.

    Also, I figured out what all the moniters they hook up to you in a hospital. They are to alert the staff when you fall asleep to come rushing in, turn on the blinding overhead lights, and stab you with something.

    More to come...

    Neat idea.

    Some of the obvious things that come to mind right away are Tom's socks, green bottles, big screen TV, wood burning stove, the small galley to make breakfasts that Leo installed.

    edit I was going to include Joe's ex-wife, but decided not to go there.

      Most of you know I have a problem when it comes to neatness on a workbench. Recently I have been seeing a therapist, Dr Horace Slobinsky (Q.U.A.C.K). After I told him medicare would not cover any more sessions he said "You're cured" and threw me out. So here I am trying to make my first modeling mess. This is the space I have available.



      Not much space, but I have to start slow.

        Rick, I have most of the same ideas, but no TV. It's 1930. Tom's socks will be drying on a mounted moosehead antlers, a few rifles, some fishing gear, and a bicycle being worked on. Some sort of a stove is a possibility.

          Sniggers quietly to mesen - won't take long to mess that space up!

          Railroad modelling ain't proper unless yer workbench is a mess and you can't find anything!

            Great idea Roland.

            Maybe a fish mounted on the wall with the one that didn't get away!!!

              Roland,

              I'd be honored to donate a pair of socks to the scale lounge. Ice fishing season is coming to an end so I could even donate a pair of felt liners from my boots. mmmmm fresh

                Roland, hope all is well...I can relate. All of that, then they send you an outrageous bill!

                Wow...fish...felt boot liners...old socks...you can enter a new dimension in scale realism: Scratch and Sniff!

                  Roland,

                  Some pin up girls and a checkers board. Maybe some of Leo's cooking and a bottle or ten. Picture of the crew framed on the wall.

                  I am looking forward to you details. owning a few of your scratch built parts I know what a true craftsman you are.

                    Thanks for the ideas and encouragement. Larry, when I saw your name I knew I would have to add a hockey stick somewhere.

                      Roland,

                      I scratched some 1/48 hockey sticks for my gas station. They sell hockey sticks there in Canada just like we sell lotto tickets. :-)

                        Roland,

                        I had no idea you were in the hospital. Hope all is well now. I will of course follow this thread.

                          Thanks Arthur. Feeling much better now. Scheduled for work tomorrow, we'll how that goes. Fortunately I am able to work because I want to not because I have to.

                          Ok, first addition to the lounge is our original mascot "Lucky". Before any of you try to claim to have shot him, It turns out Lucky, who was rather huge when he had a body, was hit by one of those little 2 foot engines in Maine. The locals called it a draw since neither Lucky or the engine never moved under their own power again. He was found by one of our New England members in a pawn shop in Bangor Maine,


                          purchased for 2 bucks, and donated to the lounge.



                          In reality he is one of those rubber toys made in China. Just took a little paint, chalks, and surgery.

                            Oh. Forgot to mention that the grubby white thing hanging from the antler is one of Tom's socks.

                              Oh this is fun, I can't wait for the rest of them to be mounted on the wall, what fun and interesting to see the inside of the lounge.
