burning square holes...

I am in the process of cleaning shop (my own) and getting ready for classes at ESSA. The photo shows the process of burning square holes in viking chests for the hardware attaching the handles. We drilled holes of a smaller size through the ends, and then used a heated rod of the correct shape to burn through.

Bob Patrick made the steel rods in preparation for the class and looks on while smoke rises. The process is interesting and exciting as bursts of flame occasionally erupt.

Make, fix, create. Increase the likelihood that others learn likewise.
