The plan is to fabricate 3 levels of table top to support the model. The center elevation will be 2” thick and consist of 16 sections shown here

All sections in this level will be keyed off of the rails shown on the primary table noted in table project. There will be locking ends to keep centered and grooves located on the bottom side for wiring chases.

This is a colored plan view showing the top level with the middle level relationship

This detail shows additional components mounting to center elevation

Some more detail of North & South enterences located on center table.

These perliminary drawings show only what I need to know to size all the table tops (butcher block).
The lower table tops are in additional models. I will not need these table tops for a long time, so they will not be detailed or cut out for 2 years. Also not shown is the rest of the model elevation. These components would only confuse the drawing. But note there is 60”- 168” of additional structure that will sit on these tops.
This is why the weight of these tops are needed.

Shown above is the beginning of the center elevation table tops. I will be cutting these parts for the next 3 month. Glue up and cutting to size won’t happen until summer.
when finished with the center elevation table tops. They will be mounted to the primary table at that point I will be starting the ceiling details shown below.

Amazing!
Where will this be at when finished. I was thinking while reading this one about a Church clock I made. Now this clock was a model of a church. It had details all the way down to the pews and pulpit inside of it. However, it was two feet high and the base was about two feet wide and two and a half feet deep. Now, even at that size, I had to set aside a special place in the front room of the shop to set it. I definately didn’t want to be moving it around much. I’d have been heartbroken if I had moved it around and broke some of the more delicate parts off.
Thinking about that though, I was wondering if there was somewhere already in place to put this when it’s done. I know you’ll have plenty of time before completion, but I’m just curious if there is a plan or if you’re plan is to figure that out later.
I know to some that having a plan to figure it out later may sound crazy to some. I recently built a chandelier though that is quite massive. I had no plan on what to do with it when done. Now it’s hung in the front room of my shop. I have no idea what I’m doing with it yet. I do know I cringe everytime someone goes near it.

I had to go hunt it down. It had been so long that I couldn’t remember where my photos of it were. It was quite a time ago and the photos aren’t great, but you can see the Church clock I talked about here if you’re interested.

It’s the journey that I am having. Don’t know where it will end up, Don’t care to know the end result, I do know that I will be adding on the garage 14’ x 40’ when I need the room in approx. 3 years. This is where the parts will sit, after that who knows.

I understand completely. I really don’t have the room to store some of the projects I do. I don’t think that far ahead when I start them. I really get into building them. Then when I’m done I think, “Oh my. Where in the world am I going to put this?”
I will definately be watching this though. Thank you so much for taking the time to show it to us.
