Here is my entry for the Gorilla Glue contest. I don’t take credit for this idea because I have seen it many times. I spent a lot of time trying to come up with something to make out of old materials. Finally one day I was in y backyard and found an old log, then the idea came to me. The log was going to be firewood but by burning it, it would pollute the air and since this is an environmentally friendly contest it worked out. First I cut a length off the log and out of that piece I cut off a lid and a bottom leaving me two thin pieces and one thick piece. I then set up a hole saw in my drill press and drilled a hole in the thick piece. After that I glued the bottom on using Gorilla Glue and voila! I then sanded it up to 1000 grit and finished it with the little bit of satin laquer that I had left. I think it looks very cool and I am looking forward to see how it does in the challenge. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it is poplar.
