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.
