In this episode of The Art of Boat Building Bob continues, in this part 3 of casting marine bronze, to discuss the tools needed for sand casting. In addition he makes a hand ramming tool and takes us on a trip to Norway.

In the summer of 2005 Bob was one of 4 sculptors invited to a symposium in Norway to create and cast stainless steel sculptures. The symposium took place at the Scana Stainless Steel Foundry in Jørpeland. Jørpeland is the centre of Strand municipality and is located on the western coast of the mainland, about 20 kilometers northeast of the city of Stavanger. This area is well know for Preikestolen, the pulpit rock that overlooks Idsefjorden.

The main products that Scana, now know as the Stavanger Steel, produces are ship propellers.

The need of personal safety equipment is also discuss with boat builder Bob Emser showing the equipment need to cast bronze safely.

“If you’re going to make it, make it beautiful.”
-Bob Emser-
