Wow. Great leatherwork, Jake. Very impressive.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

I find the sprued castings fresh out of the investment to be almost magical in themselves. It's an act of birth no less potent than forging a billet to me, despite the utter totality of difference in method.

 

In other words, cool! B)

Yeah pulling the bronze from the roiling water is the coolest part. you never know for sure that what you pull out will be complete-- sometimes you pull it out and half of it didn'y fill! so it's really exciting when it works! :) I agree it's allot like forging a billet, because you can do everthing right and still sometimes it just dosen't work.

looking great Jake . I really like the skulls and the sprued pieces are like some kind of tree that births bronze ornament.

Jake,

somehow I missed this one. Been out of the loop (stupid day job).

 

Wonderful work. This one has everything, and it is a great unity of parts. Love it. I am most impressed by the waxes and their casting. Something I don't have equip or know-how to do. You make it look easy, but I know it is not.

 

Great work. keep posting, please.

That's how they grow! I just go out in the field and pick 'em.

Thanks Owen. :)

 

Knew it.
