- Scott Phillips
- It’s very important to document your work and your build process. Scott puts an individual serial number on each piece. He keeps records of each one with details based on the serial number.
- While working, Scott was making 15 to 20 models a year. This year, in retirements he wrote a book and made 16. Making a tribute takes 55 hours. Scott has two on the bench at a time in order to be more productive.
- How many shuttles have you made? - 450+
- What else do you make from wood?
- Adirondack chairs and other things, but the Shuttle Tributes are Scott’s pasion.
- Scotts trick for finishing exotic woods
- Many are oily.
- Scott will use Crown deglosser in a misting bottle. It will take the oil off the surface for time so that the woods can be glued together. Scott also mists the finised project with the deglosser because it looks like a finished project and lets you see an blemishes before finishing. The deglosser will not raise the grain. It will evaporate and prepare the wood for a Lacquer finish
- Wood from around the world is used to represent the borderless world seen from space.
