  • Lighthouse almost done

    5628FAB9-06CB-4D43-9063-B9CF44EADDD2.jpeg After about 6 months being confined to the house, I’ve been able to get back to the shop. I discovered that I didn’t get it mounted straight, so I’m leaving the keepers house off. Then I decided to put a little paint on it. I’m getting close to the finish line. Thanks for looking and I hope you like it. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    Really like the fretwork making the masts and other details. Good job.

      No criticism from me. What an interesting design. Well done! I have never seen anything like this.
      Is it your own design?

        A very unique, beautiful project. What are the dimensions?

          Thanks for the kind words.
          Rolf, I can’t take credit for the pattern. I bought it from a company that sells scrollsaw patterns. You can find it at cherrytreetoys.com, and it is called bay watch.
          Denny, I’m not sure of the dimensions, but it is about 2 feet tall. The base for the full pattern is about 18-20” side to side.and maybe 16-18” front to back. I’m having to guess on the size because we’re in the middle of t-storms and I’m not in the shop.

              Nice work. Bigger than what I thought it might be from looking at the photo.
              Sorry you couldn't get to the shop for six months. That must have been hard to take.

                5E3EEEFB-1A5C-4EC5-AB89-27EE3ACE5D9D.jpeg I finally finished the lighthouse, and it’ll be ready for travel when I get it boxed up.
                i did make quite a few changes because I didn’t get it lined up on the base, but I’m pleased with it, and so is my wife. F675827D-9D9C-48A1-834B-89C333C46A0E.jpeg
                The down time wasn’t to bad, considering my wife didn’t mind me making a mess on the floor with wood chips. I spent the time carving on a nativity set. It’s almost done, too.

                  Beautiful! The added color really makes this pop.

                      It looks so very realistic. Makes me want to go the the coast!

                        Thank’s everyone, for the kind words. I had a lot of fun with this project. Now I cannot wait to deliver it next month. In the meantime, I have to get back to some carving projects that I must soon finish, because my wife and I have an Anniversary in a month.

                          We had a good trip to Hereford, Texas to deliver the lighthouse to a church where a friend is pastor. He was not expecting it, but loved it. Then we spent the rest of the week seeing points of interest around Amarillo.

                            Amarillo, That brought back memories! I went to basic training there in 1968, one of the last groups to go through there before they shut it down. Saw my one and only tornado there, I remember wearing a parka in the morning and being in my skives by lunch. Never got to go downtown.
