Model building is an utterly satisfying pastime. This one, for the corn crib, is one of the largest scale models I’ve made and requires extensive use of jigs and guides. Most of all, it’s the first one I’ve made for myself since college.
Still in progress, but that’s really the point of doing something like this. The structure begins to reveal itself, as do the spots you don’t really know about. Angles, lengths, and connection have to be figured out in ways that even the most detailed drawings can miss. Making 110 perfectly accurate 28 degree cuts in a row is a pleasure I had forgotten, and won’t soon give up again.
We’ve got a new, large model to share with the town on our meeting June 14th.
