I'm more referring to the angle the closed shutters create with the building walls, and how they come to a point, instead of closing flat.

Have you answered this? I went to this castle architecture site to see if it could explain a tactical advantage to the angle.

so you can see out to the sides, but there is no slit for firing out.
um, is it a dog door? or you made them too big?

It would allow some indirect light in while they're closed...

ok, well, the gaps at the sides will be closed by masonry (another 6" thick of granite goes outside the block there now), the top will be covered by a steel plate.
But, I made the shutters close at an angle oblique angle to the walls, because, if some vandal types decide to shoot at the building, they'll tend to shoot straight at it. So, any bullet impact, will not hit square, but at an acute angle, related to firing position. It gives an effective thickness to the the shutter of about 6", and because of the angle, most bullets will ricochet anyway, hitting the building walls, where no damage will occur. If, they shoot perpendicular to the shutter, and if the bullets at some point penetrate, they'll not be in line with the windows behind, and so, less chance of breaking them, or people ensconced within.

Yeah, Elorrum, the shutters can open to form the cross/slit for firing, or close tight, from inside, you can set the gap as needed.
And, I'm sure this would not have been in a castle book, in that I (think) I thought of it myself, relating to bullets and drunken hunters/kids, sitting somewhere saying "I bet you can't hit that building, Clem".........

for indirect lighting, if all shutters are closed, I have a 3/4" thick tempered glass top, horzontal, on top of the Gregorian looking roof center/cap, and below the Runes, which are held above on steel bars. It shines down trough a venting system, lined with copper, to make the light reflect and such, and just look cool.

well, I see a door on the side...and, well, maybe it's "one door", and two men, or two women, standing at it.......a cuckoo clock, can be for anyone, not just one man (at one door) and one woman (at the other).

They are little weather predictors. If it gonna rain one of them comes out, and if it's gonna be dry, the other does.

I meant to post a pic of this a couple days ago. My sweetie finished up the first of four 10' murals we have planned for the frontage of our camp shade structures. Aside from simply looking nice they'll serve to act as a barrier between the public and the private camp space. The cityscape mural will also serve as a backdrop for the idea deli.

I'm sad to read this, Bob. I hope your reasons for doing so are happy ones, and that not going to the event this year will allow you to do something else wonderful, but I was hoping to meet you.

Got all the electrical and lighting bits for the deli today (bulbs, wire, switches, sockets), as well as the paint for the deli counter.

Deli? As in The Hug Deli? Probably not but I just have to ask.
What kind of comestibles will yer deli feature?

Grizelda MK V is under way. Espressodude gifted me a 5 gallon propane tank to use as an accumulator. The old one was a forged aluminum 4000 PSI nitrogen tank and was barely 2 gallons and somewhat anemic after a dozen bursts. The new one should be much poofier! The paint job is preliminary. I'm going to strip off the inlet valve and hopefully find a 200 PSI gauge with 1/4NPT threads to eliminate the reducer hex bushing.

I'm having trouble locating the pilot light assembly :(. I'm hoping not to have to go with a weed burner type one. The reason for using the old one is that it's silent. I can't stand a hissing pilot. It also works beautifully as a mellow tiki torch / gas patio lamp.

The hug deli "belongs" to a guy named Mikey in the la area. Santa Monica, maybe. I don't think he contracts out the work to San Francisco...

Not the hug deli. The clue has been in my signature line since February… :wink: the Fertile Minds Idea Deli, whole different thing. Today I had a session on the shopbot to start cutting down boards into side walls and shelves, then spent some additional time playing with a few saws and the belt sander to work on a few other pieces. I also managed to luck out, found that someone had canceled an appointment for tomorrow so I was able to book another session as well as get time on the laser cutter to make some additional pieces.

I'd been hoping to get away for the weekend, but life gave me some lemons. A little bummed, but managed to turn that into lemonade. There were some cancellations on a couple of my favorite machines at my local techshop (like a gym membership, except instead of weight machines and exercise bikes they have lasers and power tools), I was able to grab some extra time on the shopbot and laser cutter. Long night, but I managed to finish with all the deli counter parts (they still need sanding and finishing before I start assembling, painting, and wiring it). I also managed to get slotted in for a training class on sandblasting and powdercoating tomorrow, skills and certifications that will come in handy with another project in July/August.
