Lost wood casting, pack it in sand then stick it in a plasma oven.

Authenticity; "they'll never know" the part isn't original.

I didn't have material that size around the shop, and would've had to buy or borrow something.

I wanted to make a test piece to make sure the dimensions were correct, which is faster to do with a wood pattern than a metal one. This is a wood shop, and for parts that are supposed to be cast, it is usually cheaper and easier for me to make a pattern than to mill it from solid stock.

Our local Amish-run foundry charges by the pound. The casting cost me $9.00.
