"No worries! Tia Dalma and I go way back... thick as thieves, nigh inseparable we are... were... have been... before..."
"I'll watch yer back."
"It's me front I'm worried about." -Jack and Gibbs


I've always loved Tia Dalma's shack from Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. It was no doubt inspired by the shacks seen on the classic Disneyland attraction in California. I always found wooden shacks interesting, so it was no suprise to me that I'd make this scene sooner or later.

I was also greatly inspired by _Matn's version of this scene. When I saw his depiction I knew this would be a fun scene to build. It was one of the many cool things from the film.

I will (hopefully) be adding one or two new photos of this creation soon too. There's some interesting angles I haven't covered yet.

Great build WB! You've got quite a knack for the pirate scenes.

Very nice! I've seen the wooden slat LEGO pieces you use on the roof here in the Pirate's Mill set -- have they been included in any other sets? And the color on the baseboard works quite well. Thanks for sharing.

//edited for spelling, that would be "roof" not "rook".

The only wooden slate pieces I used were dark brown and reddish brown tiles ranging from 1x2-4-6s. If you're talking about the stickered/printed tiles, I didn't use any... Unless I have some and I'm unaware. :shock:
