Tool tip and finishing question
Tool tip: I "buffed" yet another grozier to uselessness, so I whined to HH (handy hubby). Being a packrat, I have several hanging around (groziers, NOT HHs...) so HH took the oldest one and ground it down to the fresh grooves. He kept a small bucket of cold water handy for tempering. The plyers a good as new! Yippee -- saved $$$. Looks like they could be ground down several times.
Finishing question: Have not decided on the front edge of the frogbath countertop. HH suggest a hardwood (cherry) edging, like he made for my kitchen counters, BUT the cabinets are painted (frog/pond design of course)so the wood would look odd. - Don't like painting the front edge, paint scrapes off? - What is your experience with mosaic-ing the front? HH is worried that the pieces would pull off. This sink will be used, as it also serves as my laundry room. But we're "easy" on stuff...
This is what happens when you jump into a project w/o thinking, ha! -- But that's the fun of it.
