Greetings to you all. As a newcommer to the Sierra West community, a few words about myself. My name is Robert , 57 springs old. Wood has been, and is an important constant in my life. I am a restorer of antique furniture and works of art., I live , most of the year, in the Dordogne, a region in France with lots of forests. If not in France, it is Belgium . I also worked in Manhattan for 7 years teaching restoring techniques to the guys of an international well known antique dealer.
Natural materials are my favorite. Wood, brass, clay, etc. That's mainly what you will find in my modelling work. As I wanted to instal a sawmill on my O metric ( Om ) layout, the discovery of Sierra West was a gift from heaven. After looking at the quality of Brett's work, I knew this was my kind of thing. Without hesitation and after a pleasant long distance phone conversation, the spark was there and I ordered the O scale sawmill kit. The first part is coming my way very soon. So for the moment , I will show you some pictures of my work, and will be studying the various topics on this forum.
