The Mechanical Fish Sign Competition Project – Base

“After Hours” has a new meaning here at KDF.  It’s when we get to have fun and really get creative.  It is amazing how much work you can get done when the phone isn’t ringing!

Our mechanical fish project is moving along nicely. We’ve just completed the panels for the base which will sit atop a slab of stone.

We started by routing the panels from 1.5″ 30# Precision Board on the Multicam 3000. Then  it was time to do a little hand carving over top to age the wood and metal and give each panel its own character.

We’ve cut the rough blocks for the stone base and carved some Gaelic Proverbs into it.  But we’re not telling anyone what it says! (yet).

Tomorrow Brian will be finishing up all of the welding and the painting of the steel.  So we’re now in overdrive! Stay tuned…
