I mentioned in the previous post that I had applied 2 coats of linseed oil to the hickory bottle holder, Last night I applied 3 coats of shellac. Here is the after photo.
While waiting between coats of shellac I worked on the marking gauge I am building. With a little more work I was able to get the beam to slide through the fence. I decided to try tapping threads into the fence to lock the beam in place. This worked out quiet well, I just need to get a brass bolt to replace the plain bolt I had on hand.
