        • Thanks, Mike!!

          Carl, I think I went over it with an A/I wash but that is pretty much the woods natural color. It was outside in the weather for years.

          • I really like the mine Fred. Reminds me a lot of Scott Robertson's work.
            And straight into another structure. Should be another winner.

            • The mine looks beautiful! As I said before, the details are excellent! The store looks to be more of the same.
              I'll be watching.

                • Fred,

                  Great finish on the mine, and this new project has a wonderful beginning.
                  I like the exposed studs at the bottom of the front wall. I will bw following along.

                    Nothing like mother nature! I has a stash of old veneer.
                    I need to go hunting again

                    • Thanks, Rich!! It pays to keep your eyes open sometimes, Philip.

                      Jumping way ahead. You can sort of see the walls are put together and painted, to cover up the great wood color.

                      The roof will be metal. The center section of the roof I spaced the rafters further apart because they won't be seen. Waste not, want not.

                      • Looks terrific! I like the architecture and the weathered finish.
