Woodboro Store

This is a drawing of the store for modeling after a measuring up trip to Woodboro.

Hand Railing test 9/24/14 2X4 rails 2X2 stiles and 4X4 posts. The height is correct but the base spacing is to high. I built it lower and then just raised the posts.

New progress as of 9/24/14


Store 2012Drawing in HO model

Using drawings of the General Store I built the first mock-up.

To return the doorway to the original thru the 1960's I added the inset door and windows resized from Grandt Line. The photos below are a pre glue test fit.
