This gift for my sister was very easy and I feel it turned out pretty good. The timber-frame is made from stained 3/8 popular square dowels. All the joints are 1/8” mortise and tenon pinned with tooth-picks.

The back wall was originally all sanded grout with large aggregate. It busted when I tried to free it from it’s mold permanently. I put some of the large broken chunks back in the mold and filled again with sanded grout (no aggregate). I think it looks like a John Wayne Alamo model.

I’ve got 3D cad if anyone wants it.

That turned out great. Seeing the back first, the Alimo was my first thought. I think it turned out better this way.
What did you use for the roof?
