Christmas-steam 2016

Posted by Gerd on Monday, 26 December 2016 with 1 Comment

Dear friends,

yesterday, we set up a temporary track in our new backyard and steamed up the Accucraft Shay with a supply train of the Louise Valley Lumber Co. This was the first steam train running in the new garden as well as the last one in 2016 (probable). It was cold, but as in the years before, we didn’t have snow yet.

Anyway, our daughter and I enjoyed the time we spend with the steam train.

Making progress on the new workshop

Posted by Gerd on Wednesday, 21 December 2016 (Comments Closed)

Good morning,

yesterday, I had a free evening and I used the time to make major progress in my workshop. I finished three more walls and finally 2/3 of the workshop is done. I installed some more power sockets as I realized, that I had some “dead spots”. Next step will be to install the benches for the lathe and mill.

I look forward to get the new workshop ready within the next 6-8 weeks. It makes a lot of fun to made all the installations, but actually, I really like to do some log train projects…

See you soon – Gerd

More progress on the new workshop

Hello, last weekend, I did some more progress on my new workbench. Once the kitchen cabinets were arranged and level, I added some braces to support the table top in between and finally set the table top in place. The wall was covered with wood and I installed power sockets and light right into it. […]
