Carpenter workshop (and a field cooking pot)

Posted by Phersu on 09 Jan 2019, 11:24

Another good idea requested from a costumer, an interesting series of accessories probably useful for many sceneries... which came out quite nice and I decided to produce too!

These below are the first test copies in resin, with some 1/72 Atlantic ancient Greeks.
Most tools are slightly oversized due my sculpting limits, and also for casting reasons otherwise they would be too fragile... so somehow some are suitable also for sceneries with 28 mm figures or bigger.

Image

The final tools set casted in metal, and the benches still in resin.

Image

The tools includes:
- 2 compass, pliers, square, 2 clamps, glue jar, 3 planers, miter.
- nails box, 3 hammers, 3 chisels, 3 files, mallet, hoe axe, axe.
- 2 hand saws, 2 two handed saws.
- 4 ripsaws.
- 3 hand drills,T drill, 3 bow drills.

Image

And since in the mold there was some space left, I got produced in metal also a tripod and a cooking pot.

I made it a couple of years ago for my Roman Legion camp accessories series... and untill now I had to go mad casting it in resin by myself, placing internal metal supports inside the mold! ;-)

Modelling at its best. :thumbup:
Lots of saw dust on the bench and floor with
a young lad sweeping up, would work for me. :coffee: BB

Oh, this looks very good! These accessories will be useful for many different eras, a really great idea. And I am glad that you made the tools in metal, because such tiny parts in resin are in my experience extremely fragile.

I think Alex made some carpenters. They would be perfect for this!

As far as I can see these are not only carpenters tools but also the first aid kit from antiquity to well into the 19th Century.
Lots of uses

Thank you my friends!
Most of these tools were used already over 2000 years ago and remained the same or very symilar through the centuries, and changed just a little and only quite recently... I remeber most of these tools in my grandfather's shed and few look the same and are still used today! ;-)

Methinks that cooking pot needs a red LED in the fire :-D

A good idea !
As sberry already wrote a nice useful tool set for a long timeline.

Great work, Phersu. You're a specialist in creating little and accurate items. I love them. :thumbup:

My best congratulations. :-D

Thanks again my friends!

Indeed is a good idea to put a light in the fireplace!
That piece is in resin so it's easy to make a hole or a cavity underneath to put a led and make the light effect!
with some cotton whool smoke the effect will be great!
And also with a lower and less brighter light underneat, the resin is slightly tranlsucent so leaves some light pass through, this could simulate perfectly also the light of embers! :thumbup:

This remind me about one of my first attempts of 12 years ago... when I placed a small light on the top of the oli-lamp of my Diogenes figure! :-)
I casted the wire directly inside the resin in the mold... inside the arm and all through the figure body, the wire came out under one foot... leaving the lamp protruding out in the right place! :eh:

So much time is passed... and now, further than the leds there are the optical fibers too!
So amazingly thin ald long that can be laced inside or passed through most everything... I've seen some awesome light effects in some dioramas, especially spectacular explosions.
And I already had some ideas, relatively simplier than explosions, for some new scenic effects for some of my next dioramas! :winky:

One to put real lights inside the wall torches I made for my amphitheater.

Another project is to make the lightning inside the smoke puff of a cannon shot! :shock:
I talked with Massimo Costa about how to do it... we "just" have to make the fiber pass all through, from the top of the cannon to the ground. :eh:

And then I almost immediately thought about a further and crazier challenge... I want to try to make the lightning of a rifle shot in the same way! ;-)
I must cast the fiber directly inside the mold of a figure, from the top of the rifle all through the body till under one foot! :love:

I don't know when I'll find the time... but sooner or later I want to try to do it!
