Jack's Outback Rendezvous #3 Jack's Outback Rendezvous #3

Foundry Pattern for Manhole Cover. This is an exact wooden replica of the cast covers you see covering manholes in the road. Jack says, “For me I enjoy it for its beautiful sculptural form.” It is amazing to think of the skill and precision that goes into pattern making, where most things cast in metal (or plastic for that matter) have to first be precisely fashioned from wood (often by hand) to make the mold.
