For my first try-out project I’m keeping it nice and easy.
But, I have encountered a problem that will crop up when assembling the rafts in the jig.
That may not be too clear, but what’s important is that the ends or the frame and slat pieces will be glued together while in the jig. I do not want the raft to glue to the jig. I need some kind of finish on the sides and bottom of the jig that will act as a parting agent, but will not in anyway be toxic to, or interfere with the root growth of the orchids.
I’ve considered coating the inside of the jig with petroleum jelly.
Anyone have any ideas or thoughts on this problem?
