How the West was Won............

The kids here are into Johnny West action figures. I didn’t realize they went back to the 60’s in creation but I found out they and all the gear that goes with them is very popular on Ebay. They must have 15-20 different action figures with horses, wagons and all the supplies a cowboy or indian would need.

What they didn’t have was a cabin to stay in and that’s where I got recruited. The kids wanted a cabin, corral for horses, a rope bed (like Rooster Cogburn slept on), tables and chairs. The outhouse was my idea. Sometimes you gotta go. I remember an incident in the outhouse in the movie The Unforgiven.

The cabin and corral are made of pine. The table and chairs are fir from my yard. The roof is removeable. The out house is made from hand split cedar with vent pipe and TP holder. The corral folds up and everything fits into the cabin when not in use which is a must for my clutter phobia.

Thanks for lookin’.................

Hey!

That looks pretty good!

You made a Cabin so it could hold everything!

You also made the corral and Out house?

You got the figures from eBay?

You did good!

I forgot about those figures until now. I had 4 or 5 in a hat box with a zipper. They were great.

Very nice play set, but you may have created a monster that could grow to fill all available space, and even
some that is not available. Always great to see parents helping their children’s imagination grow, if we do
not help them, who will?

Nicely done set up. I like the fact that they all store inside the cabin.
