The star made of wood is finished. Gunnar filled the too large gaps with thin pieces of wood. He tested the resin but it was not hard enough. Here is a picture of the star just finished with lineseed oil and pigment.

Finally I could pick up star number two at the foundry. The guys at NR&M start working on the mounts right away and should have them finished by the end of the week.

The wood star is now Linseed oil-treated. I's a treatment called Bitus Linax™ developed by Bergs Timber. In the process some of the parts was slightly deformed so Gunnar has to do some adjustments before delivery. He will also fill the gaps with pitch, a resin used by boatbuilders.

Good news!

I will be able to pick up star nr.2 at the foundry this monday.

I have shaped the fourth star from foam and now I'm sanding the filler for a smooth surface. This one will be placed on the ground for the kids to use as a bench.
Next week NR&M will start to work on the mounts for the aluminium stars.
