So as I stated in my latest blog post of the Spalters Inc series, I managed to get some time to build an experiment to determine the temperature at which the pigment produced by Chlorociboria loses its color.
Here is the wooden clamp I made to hold a test tube above a flame without it being stressed between two very different thermal sources (a metal support wouldn’t do for my cheap test tubes – yes, i DO have borosilicate test tubes, but I use them to keep my best vanillas, so what the heck).
Pallet pine and a spare wing bolt and wing nut, mainly because I only had brass handy and I save it for something decent. A bit more than one hour to make it, as it was late in the night and I didn’t want to bring out the power tools because of the neighbors above :)
As an entry to the scrappy contest, this piece induces a balace between science and woodworking – at least that’s what I want you to believe! xD
