A wonderful exhibit just opened at the Museum, The history of the Fairhaven Hotel, curated by that local treasure Jeff Jewell. The foundry pattern that I carved years ago is shown.
The wooden foundry pattern was made to create a bronze manhole cover for the Fairhaven Village Green. I made it in 2003, before I was building ukuleles.
I glued basswood to a circular piece of plywood and carved the image on it. The manhole cover was sand cast in bronze. a fun project.
I think Paul Raines's tenor is about ready to be strung up. This has been a fun one to build.
Notice the fret board markers, Rain Drops -- Paul Raines, -- Get it ???
No Yin/Yang for Raines
