  • Larry, the split wood logs looks real . Another nice job creating a scene. ~mike

    • Thank you guys for the nice comments; they mean a lot. The wood was cut off of some Box Elder stumps
      that are across my driveway.....they grow out the sides and are what we called "suckers". After they were
      cut off they were cut into "logs" and allowed to dry. That is what all the logs and split wood comes from;
      so yes they are real wood.

        • Philip thank you so much. Nice to hear from you, I thought maybe the Aliens took you away.
          Best of luck on your impending surgery; hope it solves your problems.

          • Larry,
            Great job on the logs, split wood, and wood piles! I like the wedge in the log.

            • Scott thank you for the nice compliments. I thought the wedge in the log gave the scene a story.

              • Thought I'd share a small update:

                The three LP's have been redone and painted. This one is my favorite from Brett. The figure did require a little TLC around the
                head to get rid of some flashing and was then primed with grey paint and painted. The gentleman has been really busy as the
                evidence of all the bark and wood splinters around his feet.

                Decided to start getting the coal side of the business going so here are all four sides of the frame put together. I may have got
                carried away with the lumber used which is 6x6's but I wanted it to be strong and not fragile. Once it's sheeted you won't be
                able to tell since there won't be any interior details and a view block will be added to the inside. The door will be scratch built
                same as the Shack and the one window opening on the front will utilize the large window left over. Same with the end window.
                The Office is the exact same size as the shed so I'll be able the make rafters using the jig that Brett provided for the shed.

                Next will be sheeting the sides then assembling the building. Also I'm working on the log car at the same time. Like I said this is
                a small update as work continues. Thanks for looking.

                • Larry,

                  I'm always looking forward to your next update, large or small.

                  That's a better figure than most I've seen.

                  Mike

                  • Michael thank you. I was very pleased the way that LP turned out being a metal casting.

                    • Larry,
                      The splitting figure looks really good. How long do you think he can hold that sledge over his head?

                      • Larry, nice job on the figure and putting that scene together.
                        That's some beefy framing for sure.

                        • Scott thank you. Not sure how long the sledge hammer will stay in the air....guess we'll soon find out.

                          Rick thanks. I have the back wall sided and you can't tell there's a beefy frame behind it. The coal shed
                          will be done in 4x4's like the other shed.

                          • Larry, that ole' boy has got some muscles to have split all that wood. Nice! Congratulations for framing the new business. The wind won't blow it down. ~mike

                            • Mike thank you. I knew some "old timers" that had done very physical work their entire lives and even at 70
                              you didn't want to mess with them.

                              • Looks great Larry, I can hear the maul ringing as it hits the wedge.
