If you are going to use a straight board to make grades. Make sure that it is strong enought not to sag in the middle. I did that and made a big problem.

What I did find in the trash was 6 FT contractors level made of metal that had all the bubbles broken out.

I just set it up and put a torpedo level on tops. It works well

If you do the Foil technique Please post some pic's as you do it. Also closeups of the results.

Some of the big rocks I have I had to put mortar at the base and on some of my portals I used Motar. I got this bag at Home Depot in the masonary section It is cone shaped. It looks like the bag Cake Decorators use. I use it to put motar between the rocks. Works rather well. People who build stone fire places use it to put motar between the stones like grout.

I bought three for differet hole sizes to produce different beads of motar.

A picture is worth a thoushand words?

You built a bar so you could have need for barstools so you could build ladder roadway on the barstools?


Thats logical. It works.


Plastic chicken wire? For Plastic Chickens?


I see you have a thatch roof on your bar. There is a nussery here in phoenix that is building thached roofs for your back yard.

Actually the box girder bridge looks very good. It has more detail than mine.

I just learned how to make the detail from Livesteam.

Is that the friday night poker table under the box girder bridge?


PS Plastic chicken egges have a longer shelf life than regualr egges

Give the boss a cookie, he will probably let you back on then.

I think he is going to need more than just one cookie. That was a bigger Disaster then I have ever done


Heck,that was worse then what ever Stan and I did together.

Maybe he should have the handle of TRAIN WRECK JOHN B.
