Today, I achieved a milestone that I can’t recall ever before achieving when building a layout.
I realized that I’m done with wood.
Since starting this layout, I’ve had lengths of 1″x2″ and 1″x3″, plus various other odds and ends, stacked in the layout room to “season” to the layout conditions. These have been deployed as benchwork, roadbed supports, backdrop supports, valance supports, and other uses. And – unless I’m mistaken (and I could be) – I’ve built all of those things. There’s nothing else to build, benchwork-wise.
So despite it being a warm and humid day, I hauled wood from layout room to garage. I’ve stacked it neatly in one corner, where I can get to it if I need it. But I don’t think I will.
It feels great – really odd, but great – to realize that that’s it for wood!
(At least, I think it is…)
