    Default Stumps

    Nice module! How did you do those neat looking stumps?
    Dick,

    Usually, when all is said and done, there's a lot more said than done!

    I'm not sure if there was a question asked in the post: "problem is..." regardless of that, the module looks great (makes me 'pine' for a local club)The 'dollar store' trees look fantastic - the two different varieties work well together. Nicely done!

    Default I made the stumps using a

    I made the stumps using a balsa wood dowel that I turned down from a 1/2" x 1/2" square stick. Once round, I scored them with an old saws-all blade and then stained them the same color as the tree trunks.Once dry, I used an xacto saw in an xacto miter box and carefully sawed a hair less than 1/2 way through, then rotated it 180 degrees, and again sawed almost half way through.Once the sawing was complete, I would break off the 'stump'. This, on some would leave a line of splintered wood typically found on old stumps from when the tree was felled, as the loggers didn't need to saw all the way through since they would cut a wedge out of the side they wanted the tree to fall on.Hope this helps...
    If I wasn't here, I'd be somewhere else...

    Hey Michael,Thanx for the compliment. I understand your 'wish' as I modeled for along time alone as well. Looking back, I wish now that I would have done a module(s) and then driven an hour or two to participate in some of the runs located south of my home. Perhaps thats and option for you?
