Hello fellow LumberJocks- Just finished the Toys and Joys caboose to go with the Stem Engine I recently completed. My son wanted it red so I just used a piece of scrap 2X6. I believe if your going to paint, don’t waste oak or any other hardwood. I roughed sanded it to try to give it an aged look. As always all comments are welcome. Next up a freight car.

Nice job and I knew it, once you build the engine the cars will follow, as they are very fun and a blast to make.

Great job. Maybe your camera lens could do with a clean as the pictures seem a little hazy.

Very impressive! Detail is incredable…..BTW the reason your photos look foggy is the lens is smeared.
