Derailment" Coffee Table 1:8 Scale Model

"Derailment" Coffee Table 1:8 Scale Model - 

1:8 scale model of a concept for a new line of Rail Yard Studios furniture called the ”Derailment” series. Fun way to work out the angles when it’s just me in the shop for a day, and I have no help to lift and tote 150 pound timbers. Lots more detail to this one that the model does not give away. Stay tuned. This is going to be a fantastic piece!

Kudos to daughter Zoe. As I was shooting the photos, I wanted something that looked like ballast  (the rock in the tracks). When I said, “What looks like ballast?” she thought about it for a second, then said, “Sea salt.” Nice touch.

Only drawback…my 8-year old daughter wants a whole line of Rail Yard Studios furniture for the Barbie dolls…sigh.
