Uh Oh! I lost a button on my slacks at work today JUST when a huge customer is coming to visit for a big meeting. But no fear! I brought with me a scrap of rare Brazilian Rosewood sent to me by our very own Summerfi (Thanks again Bob).
Quick drill on the drill press and I’m SO glad I stashed a coping saw at work now. Some scraps of 100, 150, 200 and 320 sandpaper and some creative hand sanding later – Viola! I had some heavy waxed thread with me I got in a leather scraps lot from Ebay.
No finish, the wood is so smooth after 320, plus I dont have anything at work besides some flax seed oil, and I dont wanna stain the pants ;)
Disaster averted and I now have some new favorite slacks!
