    It takes a bit of time to do. Get a smaller needle. Blunt the end so it does not pierce the lay of the line.

    My other hobby is Z 1:220 German Model trains. Here is a module of a water tank and a freight locomotive that is ready to take on water. Z scale is pretty small, the track is 6.5mm wide or 1/4". The dead branch on the tree is a piece of spagnum moss. The green boughs are sphagnum as well.

    I should add, too, that the “needle” I made has a sort of duckbill shape to the tip. It’s not a cone, but,a sor of flattened cone. Like a fid, as it were.

    Peace,

    Bottle stoppers for Christmas gifts. An easy project for a beginning turner like me.

    That is BRILLIANT! Those things are popular in our home, and easy to lose, apparently. Wonderful gifts. And nicely made, it looks.

    Thanks. I have this wee little “forge” just now that really rekindled the bug in me.
    Now, where did I leave that brake drum?
