Wot no acorns? ;)
If I hadn't seen the first photo, I would have thought they are Bonsai.
Nice to know spring is in the air, seeing them sprout out. :D

>Also i am planning to make a fully functional circular saw for the sawmill
I had a brill idea.
Make it from a dremel...then, when you want to cut rail you have a handy to scale chop saw!
Tip: Build model hospital for sewing thumbs back on next door.

The mine may be impeded by the surrounding woods.
That'll need some miniature chainsaw tree fellers, complete with sound effect...then a few tree stumps to show where they've been. :D

Scenery/buildings is a weak area for me in "how " to do what is in the mind and secondly having the patience/time to do all that is wished.
It makes me see many household packaging/objects in a different light, knowing they can be used to make that fence/roof/wall/window etc.
