That is definitely weird. Maybe is some way that's why you're committed to this project.

We're using a VF1000 to generate smoke for the Sundance Central.

Another weekend and another post! Getting excited now, really starting to look like an engine. This weekend I worked a little on the cylinders and the saddle. I used plywood and plastic along with some ABS couplers glued together for the right diameter and size.All was skim coated sanded and primed. Still a lot of filling to do and resanding along with Gelcoat.

It must have been tricky cutting the saddle to fit the angled cylinders, but you got it done perfectly!

Thanks Mark. Ray, Tricky does not describe it, more like a real pain. It was allot of cut and sand until they fit then if you look at one of the pictures I have it on a piece of glass shelving. That helped me make sure everything was true. My first attempt was pretty funny, the cylinders were pointing outwards on the front. It still needs some fill here and there but overall I'm pretty happy with it.
Went out and got an early Christmas present, a laythe. Going to try my hand at turning the dome base and tops.

Here is a picture I drew up for the domes.



I cut out some circles with my jg saw. I used pine as a test then I glued several poplar together. Much better wood to turn. First atemp with pine.The center part is a cake pan.





This one much better!
