Fresh lumber for Old West buildings in scala 1:32, laid out to age in the sun. These scale models of 2 inch boards are sliced off 12 o 16 foot sections of beechwood, using an old knife ed a wooden mallet. The freshly cut, sandcoloured boards may represent recently delivered lumber in dioramas. Authentic buildings e boardwalks of the Old West should be built from realistically weathered boards which have taken on a pleasing light grey colour due to prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
Scale lumber is produced by splitting knotfree sections of beechwood con an old penknife. The round timber pictured at left provides the beechwood sections for splitting, ed it serves as a handy mallet.
