Apparently Casablanca is difficult to work with. I had a customer that wanted fan blades to closer match her bedroom furniture. Casablanca was not helpful so i made her new ones. Perfectly balanced. Oh and Remy helped. Shes good company.

Nice job…...Prior to starting the job I would be really worried that they wouldn’t be in balance after they were complete. I’m glad it worked out for you.
Nice killer/attack dog too.
Well done.

This is a really great idea! My husband and I are building a house and have had a hard time finding fans that we like/match the timber framed interior. I never thought of making them. Nice job and thanks for the inspiration.

Good job! I bet they spin better than the factory ones.

You know I was just looking at the ceiling fan in our bedroom and thinking about making new blades. Great minds think alike, huh? ;-)

Remy looks like an excellent assistant.
