Ok. Got me. It’s not made of wood.

But I thought you might be interested to know where the material for gingerbread houses comes from. This is a water-powered mill that supplies the lumber for others to make gingerbread houses from.

I make a gingerbread something each year and this year it ended up being a mill.

I did resist the temptation to design it on SketchUp first. Just used a posterboard template.

I know the logs maybe look like something the dog would leave in the backyard but I promise you they are gingerbread logs. And the cut lumber is stickered with toothpicks so it can dry properly.

The wheel actually turns also. I just hope that no one eats the nail it is suspended on.

Just saw it and it made me go get a cookie.

This might be a good mini contest for next year; a food LJ Theme. I could see tumbling block cutting board cake, a compass rose sugar cookie, TS made of fudge brownies, ginger bread dovetail box…

Very original, better than the normal gingerbread house that one sees.
