    Posted: 30 Jun 2018 at 2:51pm
Progress on this year's Kaditcha Sets is a bit slow. We've been driving the 2000km round trip to Pambula, to check on my ageing parents, a lot in the past 12 months. My mother was diagnosed with 2 serious cancers and passed away in March. Also, we have just returned from a 10,000km, 7 week trip to Alice Springs (to see my brother and his family), via Townsville and home via Adelaide and Mulwalla.

I had about half of the Kads carved before our trip and managed to carve the remainder during the trip and after we returned home. I'm just cutting out the bibs now.

This year is the 10th year of the Sets, so they are all being carved from the old Tenterfield School (built in 1887) Red Cedar, in 'roundbum' shape and will come with a special Powell Lures cap.

A few progress photos.

The old Tenterfield School Red Cedar


The blanks cut and ready to carve.


Bibs and drilled, ready to be cut out. 

I carved 6 Kad Sets, while on our trip.  The sets carved at 1770, Alice Springs and Uluru have been claimed. The sets carved in Mackay, Townsville and Alelaide I'll offer to those people who ordered a nude set (the town can be left written on them). Otherwise, it's first in.


Cheers

Travers

Hi Travers as always I'll work with you in that I'll take whichever set you allocate me for my 2018 set. They all look great be the way. That Boomer is a serious piece of kit! I bet the new owner will tuck
it into bed for a while.

G'day Travers

What happened to a Mulwala set? As discussed, if there is anything originating from Mulwala I'd be keen to grab it.

All of the Kads have bibs cut and fitted and wires fitted and are ready for gluing. We've had perfect painting weather, for the first time in about 8 months, so I've been busy painting lures that were undercoated before Xmas. Hopefully, I'll get the Kads glued in the next week.



A few people indicated that they may want the 4", 5" & 6" Kads but I'll need firm orders before I'll start carving them.

Progress report!  The Kads that will be undercoated and painted have now been glued.  Still need final sanding, before undercoating, but it's time for people to start thinking about colours and letting me know.



Just started gluing the Kads that will be clear coated, as nudes. 

Progress is slow, but I'm getting there!

Hi Travers

These are made from the old school timbers? I think we'd previously chatted about nuding them up and if it is the special timber I'd like to see the grain, so please nude them up for me. If the timber isn't the special batch I'd like that metallic purple with black hoops like that skinny kad you recently put up for sale.

G'day Paul   

The THS is for Tenterfield High School and the 1887 is when the original school building was built. The original building is at the front of the high school and was renovated in about 1990. I bought 2 of the original cedar doors, from the old school. It's cedar, from those doors, that is used for these Kads.



The other number is the thickness of the timber.

Hi Travers,

Given that it’s a nice timber being used from the school, what are your thoughts on painting a semi-nude?

Chris

One of the sets has been ordered as a semi-nude.  Still trying to work out how to do it. I think the only way is to clear coat, as a nude, then do the coloured section without getting paint on the bib and nude sections.

After hours of mind numbing sanding, the Kads are ready to undercoat.



Other than the nude sets, I only have 3 people who have told me what colour they want their Kaditcha Sets painted.  Time to give the colour scheme some serious thought!!

A sad thing happened to that 200-300 year old Red Cedar Cry Undercoating has started.



I still need 9 people to let me know what colour they want their Kaditchas painted Big smile

The nude Kads are getting close!  They got about 12-15 coats of clear, wet-n-dry sanded, 'signed' and another 8-10 coats of clear. Now it's time to dot the eyes and give them another couple of clear coats.

There's much more work in the nudes than the painted lures but, this year, I've got the nudes fnished before the painted lures. 

   

The rest of the Kads are undercoated and ready for wet-n-dry sanding. I should get started on them tomorrow.

Yesterday's gale force winds put a halt to any thought of painting!  I managed to get the base colours on, today. 



Hopefully, I'll get the stripes and patterns on tomorrow. Also have to put soldered tow wires on the nude Kads.

With every Set, this year, there is a special Kaditcha cap, a Certificate of Authenticity and some timber off cuts & carvings (just in case someone needs to carbon date the cedar Big smile)

At last, the 2018 Kaditcha Sets are finally finished. Still have 5 sets waiting for payment, but most sets have been sent to their new homes.

I tried to insert the sets in a Word document, then copy them. Not sure how they will look. I had to flip some photos, so they all point in the same direction.
