         Nice craftsmanship, very nifty and meticulous. Love it.

      Started the trestle this morning, a lot of sawing.  

       

       

      The stencel worked "pretty good". The masking tape worked really well to stop the bleed under that is typical with stencels but when I lifted the tape from the cutting mat to transfere it to the tank it wanted to stretch all the small connections so the letters came out a little crooked.

      Think I will tackle the tank bands next, I just know that's going to be fun.

      fwiw: this may be one of those things where only the builder can see the "crooked" part. besides, it just adds character!

       

      nice work! love the intricate woodworking on the tank trestle...
