Part #4 Coming along
...albeit quite slowly. I apologize for this taking so long, but the planisher I own is quite, well... weak :) I've been shaping with a 3lb hammer at times to accelerate the shaping (against an anvil & a tree stump), but the surgery I had on my shoulder has me reconsider this decision after just a few minutes... so the planisher it is.
Here are some pictures of part #3 in place. It's a pretty good fit, but #4 (last 2 pics) has been a little more difficult since it has to join two ends to complete the vase. As I work one end of #4, the form on the opposite side is also moving, so the game is on.
After passing out candy tonight I will return to part #4 for the rest of the week with the goal of finishing it. The bottom piece (#5) is a flat piece of copper so I'm not expecting any complications (famous last words right ;)
Anyway, without further adieu....
