Morning all.

Don’t be happy.

Be safe. Think about your thoughts before you have them.

The thought police might fine you.

I just got my "signature edition" version of this kit in the mail today! Wow... quite incredible how much wood is included.

Now I need to get my hands on some Douglas Fir branches for those logs! (not sure I can wait until Christmas to butcher the tree!)

Morning all.


Planning on bringing two more small builds across the finish line this weekend, so I'll posting an update over on my thread for then.

Hope you all enjoy what is my favorite day of the week!

Here are my efforts that I got 100% across the line (more on the bench around 75% done).

Thanks, John. That’s good to know! And I totally agree, I think they hold up very well!

Any news on when he may open the doors again? I’m itching to make my first visit and take many photos of my own  8)

Love your write-ups, Bob. And what a great result. Well done!

Morning all.

I can smell the weekend. It smells good.

Received some goodies in the mail yesterday, so I’m now able to finish the stone building on the tribute.

Does anyone recognize where the attached water tower comes from?

Morning all.

COVID shot for us next week.

For now, in light of a new project on the bench, thought I’d share this:

Morning all.

Got a few more little projects across the finish line last night, but it was a busy day and probably another one today.

Lots of activity here in MN with another curfew in effect for the late evening and night. To top it off, the weather has turned sourly cold again, too!

Stay safe and warm.

Looks great, Steve! Those shingles paid off. You’re making good progress.

Very nice, Mark. The overall layout is very dynamic and, again, I must applaud your planning efforts. Looking forward to seeing more.

Morning all.

Worked on a couple little projects over the weekend. Will share on my thread soon as they will be used on the tribute.

If Friday is my favorite day of the week, Monday is the opposite.

Tom, Karl — thanks for your comments!

I’m planning on making a LOT of these little structures. Today I’ll be finishing the little office building out in front of the Emporium (the one from Bailey’s Produce). Despite having the kit, I’ve scratch-built  the office so I can keep that kit intact.

Not sure what the day has planned, but I have a few at the bench!
