When people ask me why, I say that if I have to explain you wouldn’t understand..
I installed a triple tray cieling in the back room of my shop and wanted something to make that sky blue cieling stand out from all of the other sky blue triple tray cielings in the world.. I call the red ones the dragon blades and the black ones the bat blades. Both were very popular on Ebay years ago but I stopped selling both and went on to other things.. Who wouldn’t put white lattice work in their upper tray.. Really..

I like the black ones best. But for a good reason…........I’m Batman!

I know the answer as to “Why” – cause you could :-) Very nice ceiling and fan blades.

Very cool. What materials do you use and how do you get the blades balanced? They have to be exact in size, shape and weight. That sounds tough. Do you work all of them together to keep them uniform? How long are the blades?

Thanks, The blades are cnc cut from 1/4” Baltic Birch. A very stable multi lam plywood. The balance is really no big deal. I weigh the 5 blades and use the lightest one as my reference. the other 4 blades are sanded in the outermost radius area until they all weigh close to the same. Ironically, they ones that come with the fan are more uneven in weight than mine are.. They were a lot of fun to make and I sold a lot of them but stopped because I was getting into more lucrative projects. I used dye for the color, not paint.. I had shallow plastic bins with each color in them and simply dipped them in and hung them up to dry.. I also had lime green dragon blades..

I just looked at your post for the outside. This is not what I was expecting to see on the inside. You have a really cool place there. The farm house is something my wife would love to have too. Really nice work.
