    Both great ideas. I'll see if there is a way to hold it on to the faucet area. Otherwise, do I just wipe on or spray on?
  3. Outdoor faucet frozen / limed / crusty / hard water buildup / help

    My sister just replaced a water pipe leading to the house. The old one was disintegrating and the water carrying minerals through the system. The water is much cleaner now, but every plumbing repair...

    High Quality Pen Refills?

    I made some trial pens this summer to see how they did over time. Mechanisms work and the plating has not worn or chipped, but none of them write. These are standard refills for slimline kits from...

    A farmers market 2 blocks from my house started accepting these logs. I am guessing they will start a firewood business. Meanwhile, I am looking for the owner to see if I can get some logs at...
  11. Finished a trio of bowls - Eucalyptus and turquoise

    These are from one piece of Red Gum Eucalyptus. Turquoise in the cracks with epoxy. Finished with dewaxed shellac, and then, ironically, wax over the de-waxed shellac.

    I have had Jeff's experience after a bad molten shellac lesson - waiting several days, buffing lightly at a medium speed. Not letting the wheel stay in one place a long time.

    Paul, that makes sense - silky oak. Here are some more pictures. I made a couple of plates from green sycamore last night just in case, but I'll look for a silky oak blank too.
