Sometimes I get ideas that sit and incubate for quite a long time, in the case of the project I’ve finally gotten around to starting, the incubation period has been nearly 7 years. This tiny train is made of balsa wood (with a piece of hardwood dowel for the locomotive boiler) and has been designed to fit into a 4-inch circle – with a turn radius that would be impossible scaled up to an actual train. I’ll leave it to the imagination to guess where this project is headed.
Also, the Sam Bucovetsky ruler came from a bag of miscellaneous stationery supplies bought at the Timmins Value Village a few years ago. The glob of glue was already stuck to it.
