How Much Wood Could a Woodchuck Chuck?

I know the title is cheesy, but I'm running out of material.  I am toying with the idea of creating a lumber yard or re-load facility perhaps on a small diorama.  I have created some variations of my lumber loads in various sizes to replicate a 4 tier stack of scale 8', 12', 16', and 20' dimensional lumber.  Here are a few photos of some samples taken tonight on the kitchen counter.  There's really no limit to what size and configuration I can make with these.


  1. FYI: Check out Channel Lumber on Cutting Blvd Richmond, California.

    They are served by the Richmond Pacific whose spur track runs along Cutting Blvd and stubs out in the Channel Lumber lot. They usually get one loaded centerbeam but I have seen them fit two centerbeams inside the gate and occasionally they get a boxcar load.

    Can't post links in the comment box but if you google Channel Lumber and go to the maps view you get some great satelite shots as well as 45 degree aerial views.


    1. Steven, thanks for the info. I studied the location a while and it's giving me some great ideas. It shouldn't be too hard to put something together. I love the ground perspective shots that Google provides. The internet is a great resource.
