Open shop

We had a well attended open shop on Friday. Jovian, Hands, Diane, Doug (Hands' dad) and Jeanne-Marie came out. Jovian made some progress on his sabaton scales:
I had some cops laying around the shop which we finished up and made a new lame for. Hands wanted his legs and arms to match, so he trimmed the leg fans to match. Here he is marking them:
And cutting on the Beverly shears:

We cut some rattan to length and carved a handle for Jeanne-Marie's new sword. She helped clean the shop up before the other folks came over.

Diane's kit is intentionally mismatched. We pounded out a cop and some lames for her from scratch. We were just ironing out the articulation and ensuring everything fit here.
So over all we got a sword, some scales, a clean shop, and three cops formed, fired and tempered. Not bad for an evening's work!

Do you have a blog, Visigoth? If you have some space and a touch of expertise, you could host an open shop.
