Fireplace Sketch
This MOC was kind of an accident. I was going to build a mountain shack in the middle of the Himalayas. It OBVIOUSLY needed a fireplace, so spent a long time building it. But when I showed it to my mom, she said it was too European looking for something in Nepal. "Oh...." I decided to just post the fireplace. Enjoy!
About this creation

I tested many ideas in this MOC. There are many new concepts that I experimented with.


Here are the fire tools: pokers, and a rake-y thing.


The log holder.


The mantle! Here I tested a picture frame technique, and a candle method. More on both below. I also got a chance to use the new bucket piece!


Here is the entire MOC with all its parts, including the fire screen.


The mantle without the minor accessories.


Candles! When Paul Vermeesch posted his League of Explorers, he used gimp to make flames on the candles. I told him it wasn't really purist. He told me to make my own method. Well... the rest is history I guess.


The picture frame is barely off the wall. It was hard to do, but I finally did it.


Here is the frame without the chimney around it. It looks like an old television!


Here is the grate. The instant I saw those arms with the hinges, I knew what I was going to use them for.


Here is another shot of the log holder. It is pretty self explanatory.


The pokers, rake-y thing, and the holder.


The candle.


And here is a final shot of everything. I hope you've enjoyed it!

Cool Max! I like the candles. The arms with hinges picture is blurry and I don't know what they are. And the three studs on the mantle piece base disrupt the symetrical nature of a fireplace and are driving me CRAZY! But, that aside, I would like to tell you AWESOME lighting for the first pic. And great frame technique. Nice Vignette!
