After the build of the train and the wagon it was time to make this caboose. It is made out of mainly tulipwood and merbau. The plan is from T and J, which I obtained with the help of GR8hunter. _Thanks my frind.

Thanks for watching

That’s cool Dutchy... Does it run on tulips?... as I can’t see any tracks!

How’d you bend the dowel… I have my way, but am always interested in how bent other people are… I’m always prepared to get down and dirty.

WOW Jan; That looks superb sir.
Your craftsmanship and attention to detail are outstanding.
The lines are crisp and clean with a great timber selection.
And YES PLEASE how did you do those curved handrails!
