new_glue_pot.jpgnew glue pot -- a chocolate melter in its normal life201 viewsThe old glue pot is dying, and had to be replaced before I could finish this veneering project.

The new one is a Wilton chocolate melting pot, which I've equipped with a cover made from a plastic coffee can top mated to a vacuum cleaner fan impeller and an old wooden knob, with a candy thermometer through the top. Seems to hold temperature in the 140-150 degree F range very nicely. The non-stick inner pan lifts out, and should be much easier to clean up. Cost is about one quarter of that for the made-for-purpose glue pots.

Post_Test_Wear_Evidence.jpgPost-Test Wear Evidence111 viewsthe thick straw example on the bottom performed the best, and showed a little stain of mahogany dust. The thin straw example also worked, but with more effort and time, and a less uniform result. It was apparent that the test only involved part of the face on both.Charlie Driggs

Cabinet_front.jpgCabinet front closed120 viewsThe carcase and frame is all made from a single 40 year old air dried Appalachian black walnut board. The two panels are resawn and book matched from a single off cut of Indiana black walnut saved from the burn pile. The finish is four coals of 1-pound cut amber shellac, well rubbed out with 0000 steel wood after each coat. The whole is finished with a coat of Liberon brown paste wax. The knob is an ebony violin tuning peg. Closure is achieved by a rare earth magnet and a steel screw.Sgt42RHRJan 08, 2018

Inside the flat rate box was a Chris Vesper chip-carving knife, a new headlamp, a pocket Stanley Tool reference book, a nicely turned pen, a calendar from Queensland for the shop, and a "The Tool Exchange" t-shirt. Merry Christmas, Stuart!madwingDec 26, 2017
