Ready for further detailing. The loading dock is at lower right and ready to be attached.

Will post additional pics soon.

Hope you like it.

Wooden loading docks - cutting even length legs for them is endless frustration, can't even do it with stripwood clamped in a miter box.
Do kit legs come precut?

You bet sir!!!

This beauty of a kit comes with concrete (wooden forms) foundations under the loading dock. I gouged them up a bit to resemble concrete.

I'll attempt to upload more pics to show you.

Thanks.

you need a stop clamped to saw fence for same length and watch and make sure you butt wood up to stop every time

Because your going to be scenicing around the posts, don't worry that they are not all the perfect length. just test fit first making sure its fairly level sitting and trim any too long, coat bottom of posts with puddle of glue and put in place with a hardwood block on top . Use some woodland scenic ground cover and weeds and foliage to cover any flaws in fit. If its good enough for George Sellios at FSM its good enough for me.
