    Nice carpentry work there Craig.

    I know what you mean about building just for the sake of building. A couple of years ago My wife told me that the entire basement is mine (except for the laundry room for some reason) to do what I want with, so I intermediately starting drawing track plans to fill the new real estate only to realize that 1) it will probably never get built as I work out of town (sometimes our of country) for months at a time and 2) I was really happy with what I already have.

    So instead I made myself a dedicated modeling room and will use the rest of the basement as a crew lounge as I host operating sessions from time to time.

      Craig,

      Nice benchwork so far. I like the auto memorabilia as well.

        Shadow boxes are really nice to really bring the viewer into the diorama.
        I designed a shadow box for modular build:

          Your off to a great start Craig and interesting how those draw the eyes to the subject. Shoot some screws in the legs it will be fine.

            Nice work Craig.
            For the legs, if want them removable without having to unscrew them each time, the best solution is to make a pocket frame, so they can just be slid in and out of, instead of being fixed to you benchwork.
            Otherwise, bolts with wingnuts is another idea.
            Regards Rob

                  Tom,

                  Those pockets look like they'll do the trick.

                    That's the way I did my modules except 1x3 pockets to accept pressure treated 2x2. I also added braces on a diagonal. Kind of a pain setting up but sturdy.

                    Yours Looks strong!
