I thought my fellow LJs would be glad to see this huge project: A Whole City Made Out of Wood.

This young, curly and talented designer built this entire city out of wood in no time. She was helped by this young, burly and energetic general contractor. They were sure glad when they saw coming up from nowhere buckets of material to build the city of their dreams.

I’m happy a babysitting grandpa walked by to shoot some pictures for posterity.

Happy woodworking kids!

Best,

Serge

Hello Serge

A big city with a lot buildings and big towers

I prefer a little town with little and pretty houses and green grass and trees and flowers

The children are happy that is the important

Hi Serge,
I was a little worried that the world would need a architect after I stopped, but now I see all is in good hands, so I will smile for the future.
Looks wonderful, tell them I am really impressed as a architect of the work they have done.
They are just wonderful those grandchildren, what a set of precious smiles.
Have a nice time.
Best thoughts,
Mads

Thanks guys for the kind words and you all for stopping by. I couldn’t resist to post their project. When I saw what they did with all the scraps I couldn’t resist to share it. And believe it or not, they were hesitating to call it a city or a forest!

Best,

Serge
