Played with the cabin today, thankfully the bad weather went around us here in Huntsville al.
Went to Google and searched for a more modern looking cabin.
The picture I liked was of the whole machine so the cabin was to small so took the picture printed it out then enlarger it. It took 4 tries at different sized before I found the right size.
Then made 4 copy’s and cut and pasted on the wood cut them out and it’s done.
Sounds easy but it took all day.
I was planning to go rounder with the cabin but as I got working a more square one came into being.
I will be smoothing the edges but not as rounded as the one picture shows.
I thought when I got back into toy building that the band saw would be my main tool but the scroll saw does a much better job on the small stuff and you don’t have to do as much sanding.
Don’t want it to sound like there’s no sanding just makes smaller gouges that have to be sanded out.
I would glue the side to the back clamp it up and sand something then glue up the top and sand something and or get the next part ready to glue up.
This is one of those deals where between glue ups it’s sand sand sand.
Here’s a photo story of the build so far.
-- There's a hundred ways to do anything, alot depends on the tools at hand.
