Baker Fan Build #2

For something that looks relatively a simple build, these things are a royal PITA with all those angles and chiseled cross joins, pleasurable still sort of at least to build.....but boy do they eat up the hours!

Very slightly different measurements from BF #1

Oh My!!! 😍 Love the different color wood on the paddles

If these weren’t such a pain to build, I’d be asking you for one just because of how nice looking they are 😍 😍

Must have missed #1 so when I saw this model I had a mental vision of the aroma of fresh bread and apple pie drifting across the yard from a kitchen window, then I looked up baker fan.

Anyway, nice job Jim.

When I went to the automotive and hardware stores looking for a belt for mine, they asked their usual question... “What’s it for?”

Me: “A Baker fan”

Them: “Oh, okay”

I wanted so badly to ask them what they thought I was talking about  :D  :D

At least they didn't try to sell you an electric fan.  :)
Reminds me of the time I asked a young guy if they had a hydraulic clutch master cylinder and got a lecture on how only brakes had master cylinders.
