This first one is as done as it is going to get.

Among the lessons leaned:
  • The way the grain goes is more important than maximizing the wood. The camel’s leg broke but glued together well, would not have broke had I cut it right.
  • Axel holes in the center of the legs don’t leave enough room for hooks and eyes.
  • Use smaller hooks and eyes. Too bad I bought so many today.
Other animal trains will be painted or have tribal designs on them, maybe different stains for wheels and bodies as well as plain.

Now back to the other train I started.
