Celticwerks- JFE Scratchbuilding Seminar April 15th/2012
Thought I would post up some picture of the seminar I had the pleasure of attending today. The show was completely put on by Celticwerks (Steve) and Mr. Joe Farina of Farina Enterprises.
The two collaborated to bring a workshop to us with a specially cast base from Joe and scratch building techniques from our own Steve Reid. Amazing time. For a small price they supplied everything but the brushes to put the paint on...including coffee and doughnuts in the morning and a excellent lunch not to mention the materials not only to build two Farina/Celticwerks bases but some free-bees from Joe as well.
With that, here are some pics....
Steve, Thank you to you and Joe for all the hard work and sacrifice to put on a show like this. Had a blast!!! I hope to see more of these and an increase in the attendance!! The venue was great as was the food and drink, but most of all the gathering!!!
Here is the hall before the show. Big thanks goes out to the members of the DAV (Disabled American Veterens) for the use of the hall.

One of the TWO bases supplied by Joe for the Seminar....I did say 2..woo hoo!!
More excellent materials supplied By Steve from Celticwerks and Joe Farina.
Steve giving a superb tutorial on scratch building...making a jig to cut circles and squaring up cuts for hatches.
A couple of shots of the outstanding piece created by a friend Chris...
Of course I needed to snap a couple pics of mine once I got home ::)
Shh...i stole Chris's idea of putting the gate valve on top of the elbow.
Again, Steve and Joe have outdone themselves and put on an excellent seminar. I am looking forward to more show in the future and hope to see more people plan shows like this all over. Great to get together with friends and build new things, try new things, hang out, eat and drink and just have a really fun time!
Thank you again Steve and Joe!!!
