      Looks like the real thing. Chinking makes the whole thing work. The resident needs to do a little yard work there at the front door   Thanks for sharing.

      Really well done, yet again, Dennis! Bravo! I agree with Cliff about your amazing ability to invent new techniques that the rest of us can learn from.

      Working On Another

      This time a small hotel and bath house

      Untitled by Dennis Rayon, on Flickr

      The left side wall, had to paint this wall first before assembly. I use the laser to layout the words or lettering, It is so much easier to paint the walls after the laser has laid out and outlined the words.

      You still have to hand paint the words, after the laser outlines it, it gives a narrow cut line to separate the paint lines.

      Just plain old "Hotel"????? No terribly alliterative name? "Hestor's Hospitable Hotel"? "Hugo's Handy Hostelry"?

       

      Looking good so far...

      Dennis,

      I missed this thread, and I am sorry for it!  Please allow me to  echo the others' compliments on your work and gratitude for sharing it.  I had to look up "precision board," to be honest.  You are right, though, it isn't cheap, even if you get it locally!  Assuming I had that combination of project, time, and funds, is it something you can work with a Dremel style tool?

       

      Thanks,

      Eric

      Thanks Eric

      I prefer a flex shaft grinder, a little more comfortable and smaller diameter, making it easier to operate.

      I prefer it because I can operate it with the foot control.

      https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Flex-Shaft-Grinder/G9928

      Also taking cheap kitchen butter knife, I sand down to a desired width, not sharp like a chisel, allows to make Brick verticle joints, 

      Stone walls would be easier than brick with a dremel. Verticle siding is easy by hand, a dado blade on a table saw can make

      lap siding and board and batt siding. It is soft enough to accomplish a lot of detail by hand. 

      A Fun Product

      Dennis,

       

      Thanks again!  I just replaced my Dremel, but I will have to take a look at this device in the future.  One follow  up question about the material.  Is it easily cut to useful sizes with my little saber saw?  Or would I need a real table saw of some sort?  I hate to keep pestering you, but as I go from "get something running" to "build something to give those trains a reason to run,"  I have been tinkering with materials that match my skills, climate, and available storage space!

       

      Eric

      Your questions are no bother, any wood tools works great, always use fine tooth blades. I buy mine in 2ft

      x 5ft sheets, I have pretty well have  almost all major tools because it is my business, I still cut the sheet down to smaller

      size by cutting with a sharp utility knife. 

      any fine tooth blade on a saber saw would work good. I use a small hand block plane to smooth

      down and trim minimal amounts off. 

      A small Japanese type hand saw is a great tool. Cuts on the pull stoke.

      They are pretty slick and not well known!
