    Looks like another classic build on the way.
    I’m guessing it’s based on a Frank Lloyd Wright design.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usonia
    Some examples of the design HERE
    If I’m wrong the links still make for interesting reading.
    Hope I haven't preempted you SlipperySkip.

    Maybe. I prefer to keep some things a mystery. No sense in giving away the ending.

    Thanks mate:thumbup:

    Damn. And I thought a Usonian was an inhabitant of the eigth moon of Techyon (the one in the second quadrant, NOT the fourth). Now I'll have to re-think everything. :)

    Cool! I was in purgatory for a while. You have to spend time in the Modding forum before they promote you to the Worklog sub-forum. Keeps the riff-raff out. :p

    No. It is Basswood.

    Note: The lower "roof" is just a scrap piece of plywood used to help visualize the finished lower roof.

    So...

    Your making a dollhouse? :p




    Just had to rip on ya, spur of the moment thing nothing personal.

    Actually the amount of work you're obviously putting in the peice i was surprised you kept a base computer frame there instead of making it also out of wood.
    Each to their own though :)

    Oh and just wanted to know is that balsa wood because the pictures make it look like you had absolutely no trouble cutting through it, plus it's that almost white shade?
    If so how are you planning on protecting it from getting chipped, scratch within a week of it's first real use?
