Re: ceiling ring device


Very cool. I've heard of jig's like that before. Never seen them though.
Pretty badass! and thats a simple jig! There can be much more complex profiles.

Oh ya, I didn't mean for sale. I didn't think you could buy these anywhere.
I just remember years ago my old boss was explaining to me the concept.
He had built one as well years before. Not exactly the same as yours, but same basic principle.
Very Cool Mitch. I look forward to seeing the final results.

Re: ceiling ring device


That's where I got my interest in the stuff your doing mitch.

had a old partner who dealt with all the old plaster stuff. Got a taste of the veneer plaster, stucco, hand designs, and those circle cornice things you just did. Always thought there could be a good market for the stuff. Then at the same time they came out with those foam made cornice thing a magobers. But I still felt there was a market for wall art, like your doing. just never got around to playing with the idea.

The fire place you did, if cost effective, that could make you a good living

Do you mind if I ask how you do the first coat? I assume that would be the hardest and longest process...
Do you use like a chicken wire that you screw to the ceiling first? and then like a scratch coat and then 90? Or just straight 90 right to the ceiling?

Re: ceiling ring device


i think most of profiles i have cut out are at most 1"-1 1/4 thick. 90 can easily handle that by itself,bullet hard when dry,and won,t come off easily.the mud finish just shines it up smooth.
