      Those look awful familiar Lou   They will be great for the foundation of the eraser division.

      I hope I didn't miss some fine print in Dave's instructions for this year's build where he said we have to use them

      Never throw anything out, you can't tell when you might need it.

      I have the walls cut for the Pencil Division. Still need a catchy name. Something Golf Pencil Company.

      Glue is drying on the Eraser Division. Fascinating to watch. Pictures of the glue drying to come, because it's going to happen, even without pictures.

         I'm good with that! Nice choice. I truly suck at golf, haven't gotten better is decades, but I got two hole-in-ones to my name!

      Eraser Division is done until I want to add more details.

      Other side. I could not use a chimney, it was too large.

      Now on to the Pencil Division. Progress so far:

      I really like how that B-Mann Lil Big hauler baggage car looks as a building. I think I even have one of them laying around.

      That turned out to be a fine looking office, Lou.  I'll have to keep that idea in mind for future builds.

      Got windows and doors in the walls of the Pencil Division painted today. Drying. About as exciting as watching the glue dry.

      Don't know where those parts came from, so I still have not spent any money during this build. Finance Department is very happy.

      Here is the back wall clamped to the base. Many moons ago I got a few sheets of colored glass "tile" from Lowes but didn't know what I would do with it. I took the sheets apart into individual pieces. They are unique windows to let in light on the back wall of the Pencil Division.

       

      Notice the chimney at the end. The building is a long, skinny pie shape with the chimney at one end, and the loading dock at the other end.

      This is the chimney end with the Office door.

      One problem is the E-9000 glue I bought takes a good 72 hours to fully cure. Am spending a lot of time watching glue dry!

      Dave is pretty good at noticing upside down doors after glue dries, so he may be on to something there Lou!

      Um, it's all a matter of perspective.
