We undersold this project made from walnut. Yeah I know its worth more than the $100 we sold it for but it was the first one we sold, we learned our lesson. :)

It’s a beautiful engine. I’m sorry about your loss, however.

In my experience people want hand made wooden objects like your nice train at lever operated plastic punched out train prices what a sad world.Alistair

That looks amazing. I apologize for all of the questions but I am interested in making one of these.
Where did you get the plans or did you design it yourself?
How did you apply the finish without drips?
How many hours did this take to complete?

I bought the plans from the Grizzly Machinery Store that is local to me. You can order the plans online from their website. I used Behlen’s spray finish, simply the best that can be bought in small quantities, just sprayed 3 or 4 light coats. It took roughly 15 hours to complete (just a guess didn’t really keep time, usually lose all track of time when in the shop), but I changed some of the plans so there is that time to adjust.

We live and we keep learning; hopefully, sometimes it’s even the same lesson over again. Someone walked off with a really good deal on a fine hand made item. Beautiful work. You’re worth a whole lot more than 5 bucks an hour.

Nice locomotive and tender, looks a little familiar.
I bought my plans from here. They also look familiar.
