    Default It's all Al's fault!!..

    O.K. as promised a few months back and lack of time to post here due to a new direction in a hobby that I intend to intergrate into my woodwork, here is my first major work after 4 simple sun-catchers. It is entered into the Campbelltown Fishers Ghost Festival, much to my reluctance. But thanks again to the post's by Al (Ozwinner) I am enjoying this greatly. This is the form of lead-lighting called "Foiling", as used to make the Tiffany lamp shade's, as of next week I will be learning to do the older style and more traditional lead-light with the heavier lead. My first job will be the side light on the front door as I replaced the door last year with a nice lead-light.

    Well here it is, I have called it "Tall Ship", I hope you like it and I also hope the picture turns out.

    That is one nice panel!

    Got any ideas of a final resting place for it after the show?
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Hey Ray,
    Sure, pop in when you can. I have an old back injury and it is just getting worse over time, but the insurance co reckon I can just go out and get a job, (would love to) but in reality that's not how the world works. Hence the woodwork and lead-lighting. I hope to sell a few pieces now and then, I'll tell you all about it when we meet, you'll get a laugh.

    I know where you're coming from. I ended up having a back op, but it'll never be as good as it used to be.

    It's a pity that we never grow any younger.

    Looks great Savage, have you gotten the cutting down pat or do you grind to shape?

    Well it is a case of cutting as close as possible andgrozing the edges, then with a final grind to fit. Sounds like a quick thing to do but sometimes one piece can take a few hours to get it just right.

    Well, tonight was the judging of the arts and crafts in the Fishers Ghost Festival and guess what, I took out 1st place in the lead lighting section, all unexpected and a little embarrassing.

    Well done Eric
