Very nice work.

I bet installing those belts gave you a fit.

Maybe a good excuse to toss down a cold beer, when they were in place?

Thanks for sharing.

The real Almgren Bros. sawmill was several miles up Jefferson Creek and the only surviving photos (that I'm aware of) show the brothers on a log cart somewhere between the sawmill and Jefferson.  So aside from the name, this is pretty much freelanced (and will go in the town itself as I don't have room elsewhere).

The structure is scratch-built, as are the windows and door.  The brick under the boiler is carved balsafoam.  The machinery is from a KMP sawmill kit; the leather belts are stained paper.
