Hi All,

I love to see the work on this thread!

WARNING. I had a real nice warehouse I made of wood. I just "Landscaped it in", with a lot of wet water and white glue. Today I see the warehouse is warping.

I guess I'll wait until it stabilizes, then glue and clamp it straight.

Don't try this at 'ome.

Sorry you had to learn that way. Many of us use Plastic Wrap made by Saran. It is the stuff you use to protect the taste, texture and quality of your leftover food. We wrap it around the bottom of a structure to place it into the scenery while gluing the landscape up to it. The Saran keeps any water or glue from wicking into the wooden structures, and once dry, the structure is taken out, Saran removed, and you have a spot for your structure that can be placed in or out to work on structure at later times.

Nice tip. Never thought of using plastic wrap for this application.
