|We have so many threads going on things so I thought I will add to this one instead of a new thread.
I thought I had posted this one before but couldn't find it.
This is a Century model 179 closed top. It was black without brackets or blades.
Even I tire of black.
The brackets are aluminum repops I got somewhere in hammered copper now.
The bottom and top are hammered copper.
The nose is distressed copper.
The blades are new ash wood stained cherry.
First the blades. 5/4 stock cut length wise, then planed, then rough blades cut.
Century has a taper from fan to edge which was done with a belt sander and 40 grit.
Then 80 grit on an orbital, then finally 220 grit, then stain and clear coat.
And the final blade
And the fan
