  • Hey Lou, I see you've made some progress. I like the color of the walls, using the brown shoe dye and alcohol. Did you also use any powders?
    The way you build with full rafters is also the way I do mine. Even though they may not be seen it is a good way to fortify the entire building and keep everything square.
    Looking good.

    • Hi Rich, thanks for your post and leaving your comments. The powders and weathering will come when all is built. I've always liked the brown shoe dye and alcohol method, it goes on quick and dries fast. The individual rafters are a pain, but do indeed look better in a structure build. Required in this case, where the structure will be open to view.
      The type of structure where the inside is not shown, I would never go to the trouble of doing all the rafters across the project. I just do a few across the top. It's never seen anyway.

      • Louis,

        Where do you find the brown shoe dye? I never looked for where it's sold.

          I use Fiebings leather dye, both black and brown. You can find it online, I get mine from a local shoe repair shop.
          Got the idea from Dave Frary many years ago. Below is the mixtures;


          Alcohol wood stains:
          1. Basic Black Stain;
          70 drops black shoe dye with 2 oz Denatured alcohol.

          2. Basic Brown Stain;
          60 drops brown shoe dye with 2 oz Denatured alcohol.

          3. All-Purpose Weathered Stain;
          1 part Brown stain with 2 parts Black stain.

            • Thanks Louis. much appreciated. Will have to see if I can find the dye locally. Lowe's and Home Depot has the denatured alcohol. I've got a gallon I use for other things.

              • Latest update, the rafters have been stained and the Ceiling joists have been installed. Following along with the pictures below, I used a chopper to cut the ceiling joists. A couple of drawings to show the roof design I’m using, and picture showing the end results.
                The next three pictures show the completed ceiling joists, with the last picture showing the Prototype rear, for you to see the ceiling attachment beam for the split camp store, and the roof supporting braces. Which the model shows this lumber in place. Next steps will be to install the interior wall studs.

                  • Excellent work Louis. The framing looks really sharp. Certainly worth the effort.
                    And the overall structure look very neat. I like the arrangement of the windows too.
                    I'd give you a double thumbs up, if we still had them.

                              • Very nice carpentry, Louis.

                                I must say, you discover the most interesting things to model.
