         Lots of good progress, Dave. I never get tired of seeing those stones. Love the choice of colors.

       

         Also, I hate to tell you this, but I have dozens of those windows and doors I've never been able to cut out the windows cleanly....so I see another tutorial in your future.

      Dave nice work with the stones. I love that you are shaping them and adding architectural detail. Looks real sharp

      That is one stout looking building with all that stone.  Very sharp.

      What is that about halfway up the door glass on the inside?  Looks like its in the window too, but the glare makes it hard to see.  Is there still a protective cover on the window glass or do they just need to be cleaned?  The stone work looks good other than the large continuous stone on the left of the window.  It looks out of place.  I would think it would be under the window.

      Well All I got made today was a door.

       

      I started by decking over sintra with scribed wood.

      Then built up the sides, and added all the pieces to make up the double doors.

      Needed to add the hardware,  hinges and clasp.

      And a door is born.

      And where it's to be on the Blacksmith shop.

      OK before I get fried for using superglue for an outdoor building.    

      This is actually a master,  I'm going to make a mold from this, and resin cast the final doors.

      The scale size In 1:20, the doors are 9 ft wide x 9 ft tall, plus the added trim.

       

      Stay tuned

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      I think I win!!!

      Two bonus points to Pete......   ARRRGGGeee......

       

      I know that my gluing of the barn doors will hold up outside...   I nearly broke the door prying it off.  It Were Stuck Good...... even pulled off some of the ply wood....

       

      Cleaned it all up and got it stuck down,  Glue drying, as I type...

       

      Film at 11.....

       

      Dave

      Surprised prying it apart didn’t break it, that’s my normal way to fix a boner like that, break the whole thing trying to remove just glued part while week old glued parts fall off or break!

      11 o'clock in the Eastern Zone,  8 in the Pacific,  and I guess midday in sunny Hawaii.

       

      Got it stuck back together...   Embarrassing moment # 4,682.....

       

      And there is the front for now... The false front signage will go above the top layer of stones.

      And another....

       

      Back at it to finish the other two sides...

      Stay Tuned

      Worked later last night and this morning to make up for yesterdays door delay.

      And I got the Back side finished up,  and I double checked that I glued on the barn door right side up.

      A bit to do on the right side today and the stoning will be done...

       

      Stay tuned...

       

      Dave

      You have a fine stone mason there, Dave.  I'm not sure about the carpenter who put the door on upside down, not sure I would use him in the future, I certainly wouldn't pay him for the time to correct it

      Thanks for the accolades guys....

      The stone veneer is like starting a giant 3D puzzle with out any pictures to go by, only having a large box of assorted pieces.  There is an awful lot of custom cut up little pieces to make it all fit together.

       

      If there is another time to build a stone building,  I will lay it all out in the stone work pieces first, and then make the building sized to fit whole pieces, and windows in the right place to fit exact size stones. saving hours and hours of tedious cutting and fitting, and then trying again...

       

      Dave.
