|Bennington Moosefest 2009 Work in progress!|
Moosefest! I am making a moose for the Bennington Vermont Moosefest 2009. The moose will be licking a giant double scoop ice cream cone. The Moosefest website is HERE so check it out.
This is the day the Moose arrived from the company that made it.
Scraps of foamto make the giant ice cream cone
Gluing the pieces together
waiting for the glue to set
Hmmm, that's about right
Roughing out the icecream cone shape with a hand saw
Adding pieces when needed and then carving away with a large sharp kitchen knife
refining the form
Home made hot wire cutter made from a train transformer to cut a bunch of strips
These strips are for the cone detail
Adding the strips to the cone with compound and some nails
compound coating the foam.
And then fiberglass! Yum.
Now moving on to the base to make a spot for the icecream cone. Styrofoam cut to shape.
Then compound coating.
Second coat of compound and then sanding.
Then fiberglass over the compound.
Testing the fit of the parts. Our friend Rich looking on.
Next this big guy needs a tongue.
