Mini Coop

I was hoping to bring this along to Salado to introduce all the new people to the Coop. I figured, "If you can't come to The Coop, The Coop can come to you." But there's no room in the Red Coop De Vehicle for it.

Take a look anyway.




Yes, the famous chandelier light switch and Girls Working light switch is in place.

It's in 1/12th scale and except for the weathervane and Big Green Eggs, made entirely from one cedar fence plank. I even capped the countertops with Corian just like in the real Coop.

Took a lot of rum to make this project.

Maybe it will show up at another Eggfest if I have room in the truck.

See you in Salado.

    You should consider sharing your gifted talents with the less fortunate. Somehow, I feel that would be a rewarding experience for all..
  • How cute!!!
    Don't give up the rum!
    Next thing you'll be making Eggheads to stand around it!!

    Thanks guys. I'm not sure it's talent or skills or even knack to do this stuff. I just go ahead and do it. I'll learn somewhere along the way if I bit Off more than I can chew.
