Custom Cantina Project

Just out of curiosity, If i was to offer unpainted or painted castings of very accurate curved bar pieces, would you be interrested and what would be a fair price?

I'm not sure... I'm pretty happy with what I've got now, but I think most people would want to see a pic first?

I'd entertain the idea depending on the price and accuracy of the pieces.

As we speak.    8 cm radius along the outer edge of the brim. The brim is done with all the details casted from the original strait piece. Not pics yet cause my cam is still in the shop. I got a video cam for exmass so maybe I will post scan of it on Youtube when it is done.

Do you have a diagram of this at least? Something we can visualize.

I would be interested, more so once I see pics.

Here is what I got so far. Read this slowly. There might be a few run-ons but it's the only way to explain. I might use this to make a copy that I will retool to make a new master. I stilll eed to do some more sanding.

Here is the link

So far so good. Yeah, I think I'd be up for a set. I'd like to see it painted. Can't wait for the next update on this.

Good job

Yeah, I think it look pretty good too. Don't get me wrong, I have confidence in your work having seen it first hand, but I will be anxious to see the final product.

Ya but still a lot of tweeking to do. Plus I'm out of smooth on mold. It's only worth buying in bulk and thats 150 $ Canadian. The piec you see is going to be used to make a better master.

I know it's not actual film footage, but Stephen Hayford's work is pretty damn good - and this stuff is 10 years old!
