Your riverboat/birdhouse is coming together quite nicely William. I have a detail method to share with you that I shared with John. It involves signage, I’m thinking you’ll probably want to paint a name on the riverboat. For my old western style buildings I like to use stick on letters from the hobby store. I paint the sign the color I want the letters to be first and then arrange the stick on letters to spell the words needed. Rub over them to make sure that all edges are stuck down real good and then apply a light coat of spray paint the color I want the sign to be from all four directions. Allow ample drying time, then remove the sticker letters with a sharp pointed knife and tweezers. It’s fairly easy, doesn’t take long and you end up with painted letters that can take the weather. Here’s an example, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/42373

It is really starting to take shape, William! It is going to be awesome! Now comes the fun part! I love doing the little detailed stuff on things. That is the best part.
I hope you are having a great time doing this. It seems like you are. Thanks for keeping us updated with the pictures. It is like watching a story unfold. :)

Thank you all so much.Devann,The only reason I haven’t put a name on it yet is, well, I haven’t decided on a name. Well, wait until you see today’s post. As I type this right now, it now has a name and it is on it. Be sure to check it out. I appreciate your idea, but I decided to go with my favorite method, the scroll saw.
