I received an email from Imagine That Laser Art (I'm on their list) a couple of weeks ago highlighting this new laser cut wooden Line Side Tool Shed structure kit of theirs, and decided I'd give this one a try.I thought the $12.99 price for the kit seemed pretty reasonable, so I ordered one, which arrived in the mail about 5 days later.
Here's a look at the kit's parts...
And about an hour or two later, the assembled building on the workbench. I assembled it with one door left slightly open. I painted the shed with a craft paint called "Barn Wood", and then brushed on a little bit of black weathering powder. I didn't paint the darker trim pieces at all.
And so now, where to put the shed? Well, at the end of the JSSX yard, I've had this jumbled pile of plastic track ties sitting there and I'd wanted to do something with them (often thinking I should just throw them out already).I took the ties over to the workbench and cut them apart and also trimmed off all of the little plastic nubs that represent spike heads. Tedious? Yes, and it didn't get any less so later on.
