Speed On , did a amazing job for me , great guy very talented !!! Thank You , Jack
@putz Thank you for your very kind words, Jack. I'm glad I was able to turn some dash panels for you. I hope you and your father are well. Hopefully we can bump into one another at a show before the end of the hot rod season.
@fleetside66 I was surprised at how well the copper took the Cratex. With that, the Cratex only had to contact the copper for a fraction of a second to create a great swirl. It was far easier to turn than I had anticipated.
Sorry to post another photo of this, but I finished the copper dash today. I just had to share. And YES, copper should definitely be engine turned!!!!
It's a copper kind of sunset......
All I can say is Wow ! That looks Awesome !!! beautiful work !!
Thank you so much @Martino I greatly appreciate your kind words.
Awesome thread! Here's the firewall on my old T, I used cratex and did it in metal shop class..
I also made a gauge panel.
Neat copper insert! Did you apply varnish or clear coat the copper? Would shark hide work? How to keep it from tarnishing...? Thanks
Not mine. But I spent a couple hours staring at these tables at the local laundromat the other night, now thinking maybe I want something like this for my garage.
Be interesting to talk to store owner, track down shop that made tables ( including legs ) just for conversation & helpful hints to do yours
Bar counter tops!
Bit hard to see on that pic, but I did it - old school - by hand with a coin behind a red scotch pad.
