Brunt’s Malting and Milling Company

JigStones offer a variety of molds for casting sections of brick or stone from concrete, or windows from plastic resin.

Craig Leigh, the largest center on the IPP&W railway, is a beehive of construction activity. First it was the new passenger station, then the Post Office, and now a Malting and Milling Company. Malting and milling are two processes used in making Whiskey.

    I like your buildings. Very professional. How do you cut such thick wood for the windows and doors. Do you use a hand saw?

      Hi Pham!

      The usual process is to draw an outline of the window or door opening. Then drill a hole inside each corner of the outline large enough to pass the blade of a small sabre saw. Cut along the outline from hole to hole. Any rough spots can be filled smooth.
