I was able to do a bit more work on the hut this weekend. None of my cuts are perfect but what self respecting trader would set up shop in a prefab cookie cutter hut? Still a long way to go on this one. Really getting tiny again.

Amen Jon, I agree 100%. I have the perfect space for it too.

The hut is looking amazing. I complain working in 1:12 scale and you are working on something much smaller. If you ever have any "miniature" questions, let me know. I might can help you out. Been working with miniatures for about 15 years. Your huts are truly pieces of art.

Not to worry about those "less than perfect cuts". The real hut was built using a sawfish bill for a saw Great progress Trav.

If the were absolutely perfect, it would be boring.

Thanks so much for all of the kind words. I'm trying to come up with an idea for the floorboards of the hut. I dug into the miniature lumberyard and found some popsicle sticks. With a bit of cutting, distressing and staining this is what I came up with. Not sure if this will end up being the final floor or not but good practice. Thanks again for taking a look.
