lookin for some one with miniture making skills

Postby gorillaboy » Tue Apr 06, 2010 7:32 pm

Ok so I'm looking to see if any of you guys have some miniture making skills. I have this cribbage board I want to make which is gonna be a the large scale (when it comes to cribbage boards) and I'm trying to find some who can make me some mini replicas of baskets out of metal and tiny chain, the widest the mini basket could be would be 1.5 inches wide at the widest poin the hieght dont matter but I would want it done to scale and they would need to just have just a post in the bottom so they could be used as pegs for the board.

so if any of you out there think you could do this for me or help steer me in the right direction of how do it my self that would rock!



P.S. I am willing to trade to have this done

Making them identical to the link you sent is a little more time consuming than I would like to get into. I'm a pretty busy fella...
Tomorrow I will try to quote out how much it would be per basket. How many do you want? 6?

What's the diameter of the holes in the Cribbage board and how deep are they?
EDIT: Keltik is a Jeweler, IIRC. He might be the goto guy for this project!

Awesome scale breakdown!

I'm gonna use half inch deep holes on the board. I was gonna do half inch wide holes but that wouldn't be to scale and I would prefer them to be to scale so really whatever them main pole would have to be is fine as long as it won't be bent to easy

Let me know whether Keltik is going to do it or not. I have a plan that should give you a realistically scaled but inexpensive piece.
