      Dave's Mik 2020 Blacksmith shop

      For 2020 I'm going to attempt to build a small Blacksmith Shop.

      Cozza Blacksmith,  named for a departed friend.

      The incredible Never Rust Taylor Tin will top the shop,  with Taylor Cut Stones holding up the bottom half,  with Board -N- Batten sides above the stone work.

       

      Should be fun.....

      So that's why you made all those parts, so you can get a head start on the rest of the participants.

      @Dan.....   The odds of that happening is about as good as your being elected gov. of AL... or closer to Devon getting 3 builds finnished in the 30 day allotment.

      Dave, I can assure you my odds of being elected Gov of Alabama are far greater than Devon completing 3 projects in 30, 60, 90 .... pick one ..... days 

       

      Sorry, Devon, Dave left it hanging  over the plate and I had to swing

      Well, Devon makes me feel better about my glacial progress..... Right up until he posts pictures of his wood-crafting masterpieces.

      Day 1,

       

      Spent part of the day prototyping the BS shop.   worked out the size and proportions.

      Tomorrow I'll start cutting the wood for the basic box framing and roof..

       

      Stay tuned.

      Nice looking shop, Dave.  That one too, could be touched up and used on the layout as is.

      Ahhh, it's good to see that I am not the only user of "Cardboardcutup" rather than "Sketchup" to design buildings.

       Geez another great cardboard mockup.  Will that soon be a requirement?  First the napkin sketch tomorrow the cardboard?   

      Your blacksmith shop is a good looking design. Will it also have opening doors on the side?  It will get like an oven in there in the Summer for the workers.

      Got the wood cut, and fitted up.  1/2 Plywood for the walls, and 1/4 for the roof.

      Next up, seal all edges and sides with Tightbond III glue,  and glue and nail all the pieces together.

      Stay tuned.
