  • Edwardian style toy steam train

    I started this project early in December. I wanted to make something that would keep me busy during lock down. I didn't realise at the time how long the engine and figures
    would take, and how exacting a task it would be, nothing in the book was to scale so I had to re draw and adjust nearly every piece, non of their measurements seemed to
    add up. however it doesn't appear to have come out to badly, I've still quite a way to go yet, the whole project consists of: engine, coaches ticket office, station, various figures
    and signal., By the time I've finished should have had all my vaccine jabs. Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I usually like to take pictures outside in available light
    but it is to ****ed cold at the moment.

    Harry.

      Love it! What a fun project. How big is the engine ? If those are 4 inch tiles , 8-10 in long?

              Looks a lot like Thomas the Train. I started one before Christmas to make a lamp but never finished when the other projects took over. Looks good!

                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
