I've been out pricing wood and it was a painful eye opener. Even the crap stuff is 200%-300% higher than a few years ago and the nice, clean, straight stuff is not affordable for hobby work.

I came across the Mianne product and it seems, for the price, it's not that out of line considering lumber pricing and it really cuts the benchwork building time to fractional. I consider building benchwork as one of my least favorite parts of the hobby. Laying track is close second.

Has anyone used the Mianne product?

I have not used it nor do I know any one that has. I have seen them at the Amherst Train show in Massachusetts. http://www.railroadhobbyshow.com/

They are definitely nice products. Goes together like a puzzle but straight forward to assemble. Not sure how the value of the materials vs. the material in the HD/Lowes would be. I can certainly see the advantage for using it if you are not a that inclined to do bench work from scratch.


Any how they do have a bit of versatility. Good luck and keep us posted on your direction & progress on the build.
