I've always wanted to try a wooden lamp post.







Something to do while I'm waiting for the plaster to set up.



A step and a light, Marty.  :lol:

The first flush of plaster has set up.

Note the cracks.



Now to knock off the knobs and excrescences and commence the final flush.

This is all looking extremely  good, Max. Your devotion to detail and all things servo is really paying off.

Love the seal.

Now for the finishing plaster . . .



Once that has set up, I've used a cotton cloth to wet the surface, which reconstitutes it.

Then I wipe it over with the wet cloth to smooth off the pointy bits.



The slurry from the cloth fills the hairline cracks at the same time.

The marks from the weave of the cloth will rub off with the cloth when it's dry.

It's important to remember that I'm modelling the surface of the water with the plaster.

I've had to send an email to the boat builder, Peter Jackson.

His monthly wine club order has arrived.  I told the driver to leave it out the back.

It's all looking brilliant Max.  The lighting is stunning as is the small patch of greenery at the bottom of the pole - nothing missed out at all, in fact, many things in there that most of us would never think of adding. :pathead :pathead

I love the timber lamp post - what exactly is it ?  From here in Europe, it looks like a half round pole - or pencil with lead removed............... :roll:  Is there another half to go with it or does it only look "D" shaped on my screen ?

Phil beat me to it with the part delivery of wine for Mr Jackson but they look like hefty packing cases.  Are they planked or papered ?

Thanks, Peter.

It's a piece of 3/16" dowel, cut down the middle with my Dremel circular saw and then each half is hollowed out with a Dremel wheel.  Once the gubbins is inserted, the two halves were glued back together.





It ends up round again.

Then I took to it with a Stanley snap off bladed knife to take the regular shape away a bit.

Painted white and then many black washes to get the aged grey timber look. 

The packing cases are el cheapo kits from ebay.  :lol:   With lots of weathering powder.  ;-)

Thanks Max - that's roughly what it looked like from here. :thumbs

How the devil did you run a piece of 3/16 dowel through a circular saw and THEN hollow it out without breaking it - or are there 99 broken lamp posts just out of shot ? ................ :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's pretty straightforward, Peter.



I used a short piece of popsicle stick to hold the guard down, and then fed the dowel through.

I'm using Oak dowel, so the grain is good. 

The wheel on the right was used for the sculpting of the inside.

I'm proud to say I only made the one - no discards.  :cool:

It's not a new idea.  Sailors have been making spars like this for generations.  :)
