Today I was in the factory and have a chance to make the photos.
On the clean marble table you can see a small zinc tin template with "horse" and guide for horse steps. Table larded with grease. This small moulding is without armature and will be cut in to peaces to make some patterns.

Resta,
Very impressive, I am doing a repair on some Plaster Crown, it has a inset Cornice moulding, the thing is I don't have a marble table to run the crown on, I have to run it in place at the job. the question I have is have you ever run crown on a job site or do you run all your crowns in shop?
If I had a shop like you have I would be set, but all my work is repairs of crowns and we run them on site and in place so we can match what is already there. That is a nice set up you have and helper:thumbsup:

That is a fascinating process. :thumbup:

I've seen plenty of plaster walls, but not crown. How easy is it for you to transport it? Is it pretty stiff or semi brittle?

I asked about exterior, because I've seen exterior crown on homes (all wood to my knowledge) and didn't know if plaster was/could be used in an exterior application.

That truly is a neat craft THANKS FOR SHARING! :notworthy:notworthy

When you do dental I would love to see that process!(feel free to include 'distractions' :clap:)

Marble tables are comfort and you need them to be productive but not excuse. You can run mouldings in you "garage/barn" shop on simple table, or build plaster table, shellack it and use metal edge for guide, or use two play laminated board. I'm running in the place too. Like on these curved stairs and under them.

I used to do quite a bit of that. Do you ever use rubber molds?
Yes. We make and use rubber and silicone molds regularly. Yesterday I snap some photos of factory mold storage. This factory are in business more then 40 years. And there are only small part of storage. I can only imagine how many molds have factorys who are in business for over 100 years.
