Sometimes I just thumb through "The Joint Book" and am amazed by the variety of ways people have invented to put two pieces of wood together. With all our power tools and special, purpose built tools and jigs, we forget that just 100 years ago, almost everything we built was done with hand tools.

If you don't know that book, it is worth having, not only to see the joints and read where they are best used, but it also contains information on how to go about creating them. It is also printed on thick, coated paper stock so it will survive in a shop, it is spiral bound so the pages lay flat on your bench. It's available on Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/s?k=the+joint...b_sb_ss_i_1_14

Do you use balsa or other very light woods for those architectual models? Some woods are extremely carveable.

Mary, would you be so kind as to post some pictures of your work? I am sure that others besides myself would be interested. We have over the years at our woodworking club had a couple of people give presentations of their model building, and it is extremely wonderful and interesting.
I remember one person did row boats and beach cottages, and another did villages for a model train set set-up, and another did old sailing ships.

Please think about it,
Herb

Which one(s) did you not know about? Just curious.

That book is decent, but my preference is something along the lines of theory/and architecture style books.
This being my favorite, (and has all the joints listed) Practical Design Solutions and Strategies (Essentials of Woodworking)

This one also not bad, but HARDLY complete specially species of wood. The Complete Manual of Woodworking

I use bass wood, and plywood to make my buildings. I will try to get some pictures to post. Might have to post the train layout because as soon as I finish one my boyfriend takes it and glues it down. lol. He is so happy to be installing the buildings lighting.

I'd love to see the layout. An old mentor of mine had a layout in a glass covered coffee table. It used the smallest fauge trains out there. Had tunnels, bridges, buildings, the works.
