Wouldn't you like to know, big boy!

Hey, I resemble that!



My plan is to brush on premixed sanded grout. I think it will capture the color and texture of cut granite, but I'm not quite there yet. All I've got is just what you have (which I imagine you already know)--

This is where Tom Mann was born. He was chiseled out of this granite from this quarry.

Man that is one gorgeous trestle. One of these days, I need to get started on my new layout, using oNeTrak standards. one of the 4' modules is going to be a 3' long trestle....

Thank you, Mike! I appreciate the compliment. It's good to know that not all of my skills have eroded away.

I will say that much of it was custom-lasered. I developed a design that's close to tab-in-slot easy; the braces were the only PITA.
