I finally got around to completing and placing the binnacle.

The one thing I don't have is a thickness sander, so some of these smaller buildings have come out a little oddly shaped because the panels are thicker in some places than other.

The most difficult part is carving out the bottom.

After a couple passes with the disc sander and the sanding drum on the dremel we have a result.

Now nearly everything is in place on the deck.

So it's been kind of slow going lately because I put in an order for wood about a month ago that I haven't gotten yet. So I may not finish the pumps until then, we'll see.

The binnacle and other deck furniture are coming out well with your focus on doing what you can with the tools available. Hand crafting ads to the value in your recollections hopefully can move past those things that did not come out as well as you think they could have. Could have and should have occupy a lot of our hindsight lives. It is looking well. Keep it up. PT-2 (Rich)
