    Tom, the Berghausen-Shoemaker Sawmill, on my RR, is built directly on top of it's foamcore mockup. I was going to do a board by boaed build, but decided to plank the inside and outside of the mockup instead. good thing I did, cause 30 years...

    We have a 40’s bungalow in the Garden Oaks neighborhood in Houston. There is a 11x 18 workshop off the garage that has AC. Thinking of using half that space for the RR, with a long run along the walls of the garage on shelves.

    I'm liking the way this is looking! isn't homabed wonderful stuff. I've not liked the diea of mounting track directly on foam, but homabed on foam will probably give much beter support.
