Nice thread, I was wondering the same thing. is there a market for these things? That "Jilldo" site is funny, she says shes all sold out. if thats so, we as men are in big trouble, soon we will only be needed to fix the car or to lift things.

Ahhh, don't worry about it. Just look the woman straight in the eye and tell her why don't you have BOB* fix it.

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com

I heard a story...don't know if it's true or not, but a woman couldn't retrieve *BOB*. So she went to the doctor. Doctor told her it had to be surgically removed, and gave her the cost. She said she couldn't afford that. Wanted to know what the charge would be just to change the batteries.

Whether it is as durable as an epoxy finish is a different question altogether, but there should be no concern about its toxicity.
The CA developed for closing wounds was a medical grade formula. The CA we use in woodworking is an Industrial grade & little too caustic & would burn the skin when curing in most cases.

I ordered some GF salad bowl finish yesterday also, the woodcraft in my area closed its doors yesterday which is a bummer, now i have to get all my supplies online.
I feel sorry for you if you ever cast your own pen & stopper blanks. She might want you to expand your scope of work & request some extra molds.

Well finally got the salad bowl finish in. I have put 5 coats on and it has a very nice finish, think I might do 2 more just to see how it looks. I might just use this stuff and not the CA, and ere on the side of caution.

On a side note, I made my first wood turning related sale today. An order for 5 bottle stoppers, ironically it was from one of my gf's friends who was interested in the WoodPecker(just one of the potential names for this new venture). Feels good to have your work wanted by others!!

Thanks to all that commented on this thread, i know it was a weird topic, but hey, that's why I called it "awkward but important" haha.
