The shell being cast above is one of many sections to a 16-foot-long birch bark canoe. This section in particular had a cast-weight of around four hundred pounds. Under normal conditions we can usually accommodate around 285 pounds per pour. Having such a large shell to pour into presented multiple challenges. The shell didn't fit into our standard sand tanks and needed the support and strength that the sand offers and we needed to fill this shell with four hundred pounds of bronze. In true Artcast spirit we found our solution and this video is proof.
