    I've posted lots of pics of my work, and have seen some neat stuff from others here. So brag about you talent a little.

    Here's my latest work- not fired yet. The first is a reproduction of a Japanese "dogu", the second is inspired by them. BBQ sauce for scale. Why BBQ? I was out of marshmallow fluff.

    I always like seeing your work. I'm not nearly so tightly focused...I like woodwork, metalwork, wrenching, among others. Pics are of a little decorative box, some furniture I made for my daughter during her undergrad years, some very special frames I made for family using some leftover materials I got out of my deceased Grandfather's shop years ago, and the
    chassis of a '36 Ford pickup I'm building/hot-rodding. Rick

    Nice work! It takes effort to focus on one thing. In previous lives I made bows, beer, and a number of other things. Hand-built functional stuff that stays in the family is a life-long treasure.

    I agree Dix. You do need to start painting again. I like them all. Can you make them larger? Is that Banana Cream?

    Will do. Here is another rabbit in spalted maple . I feel that the wood grain took away from the actual form and is too distracting. It is funny that it was a light grain, and the oil finish darkened it a bit. Pictures don't do these pieces justice. DSC00753.JPG DSC00759.JPG

    Yeah, it just seemed like the right thing to do. At least it's not just another small block Chevy. This is an 8BA Merc with the 4" stroke, built for me by Motor City Flathead. Adapter mates up a Warner T-5 to it. Should be fun.

    Very easy, cool and fun. People love em.
    Base is 1" plate, can be tough to find but usually can get a scrap or two. Cut at an angle to look like rock.
    Take some welding rod and break off the flux coating, weld 3-5 (odd numbers look best) to the base, with a torch heat and twist and work to desired location.
    The leaves are no more than brazing rod, take a clean metal table and hold brazing rod about 1 1/2 feet above and melt with a torch. Hot blobs of brass will create the leaves, just keep adding more melted spatters until happy. Toughest part of the whole project is welding the delicate leaves to the welding rod. I usually build up a bit of brass on the bottom of the leaves before i try to weld them on. Just melt together with a torch. I have made some real cool ones, i like a 3 leaf design with bigger leaves. Not finding photos of them. iron 001r.jpg
