I have seen in the bonehead thread several of you mention casting etc. What is the best way to go about making a mold. I have seen youtube videos of people using slip molds but nothing specific about the construction of one.

I have a wooden pineapple finial that I would LOVE to multiply for use around my house. :)

Molds are easy IF there are no undercuts.
For example a ball has no undercuts thats an easy two piece mold

Check out John Britt on Youtube . . . he has several videos on making molds, generally of the more simple variety.
