Christmas train

#236503 by wrmnfzy » Sun Jul 16, 2017 2:20 am

The boss has requested that I make a train and some cars for her for Christmas. She hasn't been able to find a picture of one she likes. I was wondering if anyone has made one and if you might share some photos. This is to go on our mantle. If not I will try and fake it. Thanks ahead of time.

Thanks, my wife said it is a little too intricate for what she wants. I'll keep trying.

Thanks, she says this is a lot closer to what she wants. By the way here is a door topper she just painted.

So too 'intricate' for her to paint.

Wise woman!!!

Yes, like the Ho Ho Ho, she can never sell them for the time she has in them. But this is for her to keep, we'll see I started a prototype and we'll see if I can get a better idea for what she wants other than the small rough drawing she made. I'm sure I'll be making several before she gets what she wants.

Thanks, I'll show her and maybe she'll get some ideas. A little delays her mother just went into hospital, nothing serious we think, but between this and the other craft stuff we'll see when she can get back in the creative mode vs the production mode.
