I’m not sure what exactly set me off on this idea, but I suspect it was the City Corner set, which includes a small pizza place. I had the idea to create a commercial kitchen in Lego. I know, you’re thinking, “but Dave, this is not a mosaic”. Indeed, I say…Indeed.
So I put some thought into the sort of things I’d want to have in the kitchen, and made a couple of orders on Bricklink. Within a week or so, I had the kitchen staff, and a giant lot of tiles. I decided that this MOC should have a lot of tile and flat surfaces, as it is a kitchen. Once I started, I began to see opportunities, and ideas began formulating. It’s taking a bit longer than I thought, but I want to get it right. Also, the project has a bit of creep to it, as I’ve now added a small cafe area to the front. My faithful assistant Finny has been a great help, coming up with new ideas and adding tiles pretty much everywhere, regardless of color scheme!
I’m planning on bringing it to BrickCon in October.
