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
