the first psalm...

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

first cast...

First test cast from a 3D printed master - came out to be 36 grams of fine silver.  A little rough...but I think it's going to work.  I kinda rushed packing it in the casting sand (I mistakenly used Petrobond instead of Delft clay) just so I could get a pour done today and see what I need to refine.  To be honest, I really didn't think it would come out this good so I am pretty pleased with the results.  It has taken quite a bit of work just to get a master that I could successfully remove after packing it into the casting sand.  57,64,38,0,B

bed in a box...

Been having lower back pain issues for the past month so I thought I might try a new mattress.  Unfortunately, I couldn't 3D print one...  51,60,48,0,B
