hey Paintrain:

I agree with Tom the stain looks great. I'm following along. Always enjoy FSM builds.

You have a nice start on the Sawmill, the 170 Sawmill was my first ever fsm kit , this is a nice kit as well.

Thanks for the props

Lets see how your sawmill turned out, Lynnb.  I've got the old time saw mill and barnstead lumber in the pile as well.  and a mountain of sierra west kits.  Speaking of, it's time to start doing the window casting for the walls so I ordered the materials for that based off Brett's instructions.  Should be here in a few weeks.

Here's my 170 Sawmill, its gotten beat up a bit since tearing down the last layout, needs a couple repairs.
You're doing a great job on your build.

Beautifully elaborate woodwork.  The subtleties in the stain are very well done and effective.

Great job so far.

It looks like your templates are under a fairly thick glass work surface. One suggestion I'd give is to get a cheap photo copier and some double sided tape. Make a copy of the templates and use the tape to secure the wood directly to the template. It's much easier, more precise and faster. With the copier you can make multiple sheets so you can work several sub-assemblies at the same time.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the replies.  No updates since right after I got back into the kit, I ended up with a new job 1000 miles away.  I'm getting settled in and should be back to building soon.  I also noticed I used the wrong elmer's wood glue, so I'll have to spot check it with the water proof variety when I get a chance.

Steve, thanks for that idea.  I'm going to try it out for the remainder of the build.
