Default Doodling

Hey guys, thought I would share my first couple of attempts at making something. I call it doodling because I didn't have a specific pattern to match, just getting a feel for using all the tools and adjusting the shape and arrangement as I go. But the end results were intended to be a miniature motorcycle tail section and a mini fender (inspired by Wray Schelin's mini Jaguar fender video)
Everything was done with an english wheel, basic shrinker/stretcher and a bead roller.

Nice work Andy
All you have to do now is make the rest of the miniature panels and then you will have a miniature car.

Nice work Andy.

I wish I saw more young guys doing what you are doing. By you doing your doodling you are getting the feel for the different tools. KEEP IT UP.

Great start! The best way to learn is to jump in and make stuff.
