1/2" Scale miniature, shot up on a hill against natural sky & distant landscape. White bounceboard for shadow fill, no flash. Almost 2′ tall, wood construction, cast resin details, and polyester resin for stucco like textures. This was a piece for a private collector.
These scale models are also ideal for G-scale garden railroads, part of a European Village.

This gentleman actually is a cabinetmaker, and a fine one at that. His shop is situated in Colonial Williamsburg in a building originally used as a cabinetmakers shop. No electricity, all work is accomplished with period wood crafting tools of the period. The light from the windows is what lights the shop.

Scale model color corrected from the previous photo. The first time I downloaded this I didnt realize I had color correction on the scanner! www.flickr.com/photos/8331880@N02/3600447061/

Now we can see the window frames and stucco detail a little better. The window to the right over the door has an organic stain glass pattern to it. The double window below has a diamond criss cross in it. The doorknobs themselves are the heads of nails, the rust color is.. well.. rusty nail heads!
As an experiment I tried different patterns for each of the windows. I made wood masters, poured silicone rubber molds, then 2 part resin parts. It saves alot of time re-making components for other houses.
Roughly 24 inches tall mounted on a round base, interior lit. Please see the other photo in the stream that gives the scale better 🙂
All wood & rigid material construction. No clay, foamcore, card stock, fimo, super sculpey, etc..

1/2 Scale after windows, rockwork & details added. Wood construction, cast resin details, polyester resin for stucco-like textures. Most lines are bent like a freehand sketch. The wavy diamond pattern window was framed out in basswood then cast in silicone for two part resin castings. The base of the lighthouse model has these same diamond windows, and its far too time consuming to re make so many. When framing out a window I use a wood blank ‘plug’ thats the same dimension as the casting. Then remove the plug and install the casting and its a perfect fit!
Finished piece for a private collector. These are also ideal for G-scale garden railroads, part of a European Village.

2 polyhedron in one! …and 2 Platonic Solids in one!
This is a ‘dual’ of both a dodecahedron (stained dark) and an icosahedron (clear coated). They are duals mathematically, because they relate to each other ‘one to one’ in the number of edges (30 each), and they relate as compliments to the number of planes to number of vertices (20 & 12).
This is one of the more difficult pieces to make, because each has 2 different lengths. In fact their exact relation to each other is the ‘golden ratio’ which is really big all throughout nature. Each of the wood pieces is cut just halfway thru so they snug fit like Lincoln Logs. The 3 way compound miters on the dodecahedron are different than the 5 way compound miters on the icosahedron.
Did you take notes?…There will be a quiz on Friday!
