Toys by NWITileGuy
What is your favorite kind of toy box. I don't really like anything that is plastic and would like to find something made of wood. I would like to find a wooden toy chest that reminds me of the one I had as a child.

candle glaze by [email protected]
Hi, Can anyone tell me what to use as a glaze for candles? I have heard that 'French polish' (shellac) should be used, after it has been diluted with metholated sprits, but I am concerned that something like this may interfere with the burning of the candle. I have also heard that dipping in...

I need a special glue by Stewart Schooley
I am looking for a glue that spreads easily, dries clear, is thick enough so that it doesn't soak into printed paper, forms a super strong thin film, and of course, is reasonably cheap. There are some glues in tubes that do the job, but they aren't easy to spread out. The best I have found so far...

Questions on soap and soapmaking by Toby
What determines the softness and the mildness of a (traditional) soap? How does the soap from a hot and a cold process differ? How much glycerin is produced in the saponification of coconut, olive, palm oil with NaOH? How much of the fat in coconut, olive, palm oil is unsaponifiable with NaOH?
