For some reason that strip next to the tub un-tiled bothers me. Don't know why, just a preference/looks thing.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Here's one of those random projects that just needs to be shared. This is a sculpture for a client that was in need of some repair. Apparently the sculpture mounts via a drill bit in the bum to one of the old style manual egg beater drills. The bit had broken off and the sculpture fell and broke its ear. My job was to embed a new bit and to repair the ear.

I drilled lots of 1/16 holes around the original bit until it was freed up. Once the bit was removed I made a jig to hold the sculpture inverted. Using this jig I shot a laser along center mass and plumbed it up. This allowed me to make another jig to hold the new drill bit plumb while the plaster cured. After the plaster cured I chucked it up in a drill to check the rotation. Dead nuts.

Next up was the ear. I cleaned up the area with a dremel and a diamond bit as it looks like it was previously repaired so I got rid of all of the old glue and made keyways for the new epoxy to bond to. I got all macgyverish and made another jig to hold the ear in place using a ziplock bag, epoxy stick, a water bottle cap, and #10 screw that I flattened the point on. That held the ear in place with mild pressure while the epoxy sets up over the weekend.

Yes, those are human teeth.

There is no accounting for taste, or a lack thereof, but that pic with the funnel at least gave me a good laugh!

Good work by the way.
