Back again today. I got the cyclone finished up last night. The main cyclone is made from a piece of dowel, and the exhaust pipe is four separate pieces of brass tube. It was painted with steel gray, and flat metal tin colors, and than my real rust wash added to it. I just need to get the pipe in place once the Wood working shop is all put together. Till next time, Thanks for taking a look....

Hey All,
 Been a little while since my last update, but I have been working on it. I pretty much finished up the Sawdust shed, just need to finish up the cyclone. The cyclone platform was almost like building a small kit in itself. George sure did make his kits full of detail....Thanks for taking a look...

Looks like really good stuff, but $16 a bottle, not including shipping????? Guess you have to pay for the Good Stuff...

Dave,
 I agree with Jeff on the wash. Take normal strength and dilute 2 to 1.(meaning 1 part AI to 2 more parts A) I made a little batch awhile ago, and still have some left. This way you can always add more in spots to give some color variation.

I got the last of the office details done. The coffee pot, and the office chair. The chair I am not overly happy with, and really am ashamed to put the pics up, but I am not going to re-build. I use Zap A Gap, and not sure if it is just a bad bottle, but it has been not so good at absorbing lately. Also might have to do with the wood stain I used on this wood as well. Thanks for taking a look...(do not forget to see the casters on the chair)

Dave,
 Looking real good. I love the pickling wash. Did you put on an ink wash after the paint and all? I found that it deepens the color, and brings the grain out a little more.....
