Quite some time ago I started a sample sign project. Here’s the link. But then we got busy. It has sat in the corner gathering dust ever since. But good ideas can’t stay dormant forever.

As I thought about a needed weather vane I knew just what I would make. I removed the tracks as they were too short and instead welded up some steel pieces that would be a little stronger too. Then I did a little sculpting using some Abracadabra Sculpting epoxy. It didn’t take long to have the piece done.

I’ll let it cure a couple of days and then we’ll give it a few coats of paint. It won’t be long until it gets installed on the water tower – a perfect fit for the mining theme.
Every detail we add tells just a little more of the magical story.
