In the period in question (c.1920) the brick pattern was the Flemish Bond - not the simple, more modern Stretcher bond as shown here. https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171799 142171799 Corrugated Roofing After exhaustive tests employing recycled bean cans, I have settled on a highly mutilated, corrugated card from GF Smith - exactly the correct scale! I'm pretty pleased with the rust effect for an initial attempt. https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171800 142171800 Plaster https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171801 142171801 Brickwork detail https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171802 142171802 Handmade Tool https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171803 142171803 Brickwork https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171805 142171805 Roofing and Brickwork https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171806 142171806 Handmade Tool and Brickwork https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=142171807 142171807 Original Shelf The Family Adams Project have had the good fortune to be given some material from the fabric of the Adams shop, kindly donated by David & Susan Porter (the current owners). This was in the form of a disused shelf from the shop's office. Being over 100 years old, the pine timber is now rather well-seasoned and sweet-smelling when sawn. https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644991 143644991 The shelf proved sufficient to provide all the material required to fabricate the plinths for both models (Shop & Forge, plus separate Barn unit). https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644995 143644995 https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644993 143644993 With the aid of my trusty bandsaw I was able to perform the slicing of the material. https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644990 143644990 Then with the router, form the various profiles that made up the complete plinth assemblies. https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644994 143644994 https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644992 143644992 I designed the plinth styling to reflect the ?tongue & groove? panelling that appears extensively throughout the interior of the shop. https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644996 143644996 The next stage will be to consider the finishing techniques required to project an antique patina with a durable finish. https://familyadamsproject.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=143644997 143644997
