A bit done this weekend but not much. I made a wooden soda crate to be used as a step. Made from basswood and printing plate strips and hand lettered the label. Needs a bit more weathering especially on the bottom.

Progress is slow but its still progress. :D

That looks spectacular, Brad. 

 

If the job I had an interview for (or one of the eight or nine I have active applications with) happens, I will be taking a personal day or two to come out and see this next April, along with all the other miniature wonders of the southwest.

Brad entered this diomodel in our club's monthly contest (this month's theme was "Builder's Choice," where anything goes).  There were 17 entries, but Brad's trailer and campsite won handily.

 

It's a masterpiece!

Chris - thanks for your interest. I'm just about done adding things. I need to finish off the base edges and call it done.

 

Danno - thanks for accolades. I love those Builder's Choice nights.  LOL

 

Terry - thanks for following along.
