custom 3d sink

Post by gillzilla »

so here's my newest creation.
made from HDU and hand painted. i used the picture of the famous "grand prismatic" pool in Yellowstone park (just down the road) and created my own custom "erosion" sink.

6 inches thick, sliced to 2 inch layers. ran at 300 ipm with a 1/4"ballnose at 75% stepover for roughing, ran at 300 ipm with a 1/8" ballnose at 18% stepover for finishing. did a bitmap component overlay for texture and details.

air brushed with enamels and coated with a generous layer of gel-coat for durability.

wanted to do something really unique with some usability and this is where my mind led me......

That is awesome! First thing my wife said though, "If you make that, I'm not cleaning it!"

I don't blame her.... it's more art than function. but we have a lot of people that only live in their house around here for a few weeks to a few months each year. these houses are more for showing off what you can buy, but those are the best paying customers... :D

i really like the idea of geyser or mystic falls faucet, would take some figuring for controlling the water while getting the look.
but it sure would be spectacular...
on a slant to that, i've been thinking about trying to sell a water feature based off of the park to one of the local hotels. i imagine coming into the lobby and there is a large re-creation of the mud pot terraces or geyser or hot pool, koi fish optional of course. :D
