      Fence made from Redwood all cut on tablesaw

      Drag thin boards backwards on a bandsaw makes a nice way to cut edges to look uneven/rotted.

      Hey Dennis.  I just happened on to your build.  Fantastic modeling (as usual).  Will using the PB replace your famous Magic-Sculp process of the past?  Just wondering.  And thanks for posting.

      Thanks Peter

      Wont replace the magic sculpt, but it will reduce the use of it, this is quicker.

      Making Redwood Shingles

      I am making shingles this time with the table saw. I have done them in different ways, I actually made a shingle splitter, that works

      very well, but I like this way the best. I purchased a thin kerf blade to save a little lumber. It cuts very nice, and smoothly. I will cut 3 different thickness, about .050-.060-.070, these will give a very authentic look .  Then I take a wire brush on a cordless drill and wire brush the wood as pictured. Quick and easy.

      Then I stack the three different thickness in no order, using masking tape and wrap it in a spiral as pictured. Then I set the fenceon the bandsaw  to 1" and crosscut the complete stick. So I end up with many pieces taped together measuring 1" long and 1-1/2" wide. 

      These were cut from a 2'x6' redwood board.

      IMG_4977 by Dennis Rayon, on Flickr

      I used a cutter because I have one, I also just split many with my fingers and thumbs. With the cutters i do 4-7 layers

      at a time.

      Start Laying Shingles

      I layout lines 1" apart for reference lines for me to follow how straight I am laying them.

      Now the first layer of the steel shim stock rolled through the home made crimper, I use steel so I get REAL rust.

      This is my shear to shear the strips. can also be cut by a good pair of sizzors or tin snips could be used.

      Then the Crimper

      This is is Birds eye view of the roof, I treated the steel with a coating of Muratic acid and then spraying hrdrogen peroxide, that will activate rust affects immediately.

      Then over night it is at the limit of rust i want, then I remove rust in places as seen in the picture, with the drill and wire brush, then spray with a clear coat to slow down

      more growth of rust.

      SIGNS

      IMG_E4930 by Dennis Rayon, on Flickr

      The signs are made from 2 layered acrylic lasered and cut on a laser. 

      I used a dremel with a wire brush and fine sand paper , to slightly remove the top coating.
