Chuck, how do we know that's really your hand? Personally I think it is the hand of a giant who climbed down Jack's beanstalk. -- Russ

I like the design of that chair, looks easier to build than most. I may have to try making some to go with one of my structures.

Ray, here are the plans I used. I made the back more rounded, otherwise it's from this plan.

Absolutely stunning, Chuck. No room for criticism at all. Again the grass blows me away in your b/w-picture. Barring the Adirondack. Unfortunately all your furniture looks unkempt and neglected. Otherwise I would have asked you to build a desk for me Cheesy.

Thanks Volker!


I have had little interest to sit at the bench lately, and when I have everything seems to go badly. But after many mini sessions (mostly frustrating do-overs), I finished another detail for my dio.
 


I modeled the faucet body and handle in Solidworks, and then had them printed at Shapeways. I initially did the handle as one piece, but it proved impossible to clean up without breaking. So I made a 3 piece version that allowed me to roll sand each part on a piece of fine sandpaper and then assemble. I printed these parts in a protective box with an opening to allow them to be cut off. I also used the "print it anyway" option to avoid any delays.



After cleaning, the parts were primed with Mr. surfacer and then finished with gouache and pigment powder and Dullcote spritzing. The pipe is aluminum tubing.





The handle screw is a shaved Tichy rivet. I attempted some threads on the spout; they sort came out. Not too bad considering they are spaced .003 apart. I either need to find some finer printing or else switch to 1:1 scale.

Can you and Volker please go stand in the corner so the rest of us can play catch-up? Another masterclass in the art of modelling. Because stuff like this is definitely A...R...T.

Yeah, that's about the most horrible model faucet I've ever seen. Embarrassing, isn't it? -- Russ
