Matchbox Toy Garage – An Old Iconic Australian Service Station – Golden Fleece..I've forgotten how many of these I've made and given away, but this one is for the Local Community Clubs Christmas Raffle, my wife asked me if I could make one and I chose the theme of an old iconic Australian Service Station Roadhouse.I found all the images on the internet, scaled and printed them to detail the garage. The paint colours were an issue but one of the local paint & decorator shops matched sample pots of the blue & yellow livery of the Golden Fleece perfectly.I've had a bit of fun with the Springwood sign post as Springwood never had a Golden Fleece Service Station neither was it the last service station for the next 750 miles as you entered the Outback.Along with that I had to add a few icon Australian brands; Peter's & Arnott's. And some special brands to me; Peterbilt, Ford, Goodyear.And YES, Handy was a good assistant on this project.Should be a top Christmas Present for some family along with a good Fund raiser for the club.
I made these shutters for my in-laws for their 3 season trailer in Cape May. My mother in-law wanted something different to make their place stand out from all the others. Finished with a waterproof paint to withstand the elements.
This is a stock I made for my Remington 700 7mm mag action and barrel. First stock I've made, pretty happy with the results. Made it with walnut and birch ply's. I did most of the in-letting with hand tools. I glass bedded the action and finished with multiple coats of Birchwood Casey tru oil. I've put about 10 rounds through it so far, it shot pretty good and that's before I glass bedded the action.
