The IRON HORSE is not for everyone. It is only for those that want the very
best and are willing to spend a few dollars more to get it.
Here is the story about this incredible Mexican Train Station.
Aside from being a dedicated wood-worker, I also have a keen interest in
trains. Specifically vintage steam locomotives. For a couple years now I have
wanted to make a large HUB that has intricate carvings depicting a vintage
steam locomotive and large enough to allow 12 people to play it. I have talked
myself out of designing and carving one for sale due to the complexity of the
design (which takes a lot of time) and the price I would have to sell it for.
So finally I decided to sit down and design one, just one, for my family. It
took many hours and several changes before I was happy with the design. Well
today I took the design out to the shop and carved one out of solid oak. All I
can say is Wow! I am very pleased with it! But again, the amount of time that
this item demands in the carve, the hand sanding and finishing is just too much
to consider offering this for sale. But the more I look at it with all it
complex carvings and detail, I know there are people out there that also want
something really special and are willing to treat themselves to this special
limited creation. So I have decided to offer the 'IRON HORSE' for sale. This
will be a limited run due to the amount of time it take to make one and the
cost which coincides with the time and complexity of the design, meaning it
won't be affordable for everyone.
