    the company trialled the Australian U Beaut range of waxes polishes finishes and dyes it knew it had found something special a range that delivered great results in a quick and no nonsense way while still being surprisingly economical Take for instance the highly recommended EEE Ultrashine abrasive polish and surface preparation a cut and polish paste wax that is designed to be used in conjunction with the Shellawax cream or liquid but that can also be used on its own on plastics and products used for pen bodies It is also perfect for using after French polishing and to restore previously polished surfaces While the EEE Ultrashine is not a finisher itself the polished surface requires a protectorant such as Shellawax when the two products are used together the results are highly impressive The ultra fine abrasive polish which contains Tripoli powder can be used over multiple other oil and varnish finishes resulting in a quality of finish that is superbly lustrous and impeccably smooth all for under 10 Then there s Shellawax itself a woodturners friction polish that brings an amazing level of finish to smaller spindle work on objects up to approximately 10cm 4 in diameter The wax has a hard shellac base which not only gives a highly durable finish continuing to harden for up to three weeks after application but that also helps protect against marks and blemishes from heat water and alcohol In one quick drying application the woodturner achieves wood finishing that is hard to beat with any other product available in the market today To see the full range of U Beaut s Shellawax wood finishes and dyes as well as a host of other wood turning tools visit www toolpost co uk Editor s Note The ToolPost is represented by the

    fine wood working and woodcarving and help people to view utilitarian objects as fine art Betsy Broun director of the Smithsonian American Art Museum explains A lot of Americans say fine art is not for them but no American doesn t like a Sam Maloof chair For so many decades he was considered the premier wood craftsmen in this country and the world Maloof s origins as a wood craftsmen were as utilitarian as his work itself As a newly married man on an artist s assistant s salary Maloof could not afford to furnish his first home one of the first tract homes to be built in California so he set about building furniture from scrap wood After a feature in Better Homes and Gardens on these new tract homes readers made enquiries about the beautifully made furniture with the simple fine lines The first orders came in and quickly built up and soon Sam Maloof was in business But mass manufacturing this was not and Maloof always retained the artistry of his craft by rejecting many approaches by manufacturers making every piece by hand in his own workshop Maloof famously never used a tape measure simply sketching the lines to be cut freehand he would then make a rough piece which he would hand over to his team of three longtime assistants for the final wood finishing Friends of Mr Maloof report that he was still working six days a week mostly 10 hour days shortly up until his death He was quoted as saying If you love what you do it really isn t work Maloof always maintained he was not an artist but a woodworker but his fans would claim that his finest achievement was impressively illustrating the fine line between art and craft ToolPost are

    to be careful with his spending I was therefore amazed when he waltzed into the shop one day and requested a hollowing gouge We had a chat to clarify exactly what he meant and what he planned to do with it and it turned out he wanted to take the innards out of an egg cup or small goblet I reminded him that I had only recently sold him a perfectly adequate spindle gouge that would do the job very simply I took him to the lathe mounted a block of timber and showed him how to use a standard spindle gouge ground conventionally for this operation I got him to have a go until he was hollowing like a good un He stepped back proudly from the lathe brushed off the shavings and asked again for a hollowing gouge because that was what the article he had read had told him he needed to use I picked myself up from the floor took him to the rack showed him the range of hollowing gouges and let him spend a little of his hard saved cash He went off happily which is a good thing and left me thinking of words like water horse drink and lead Why is it that we seem to accumulate tools like the forest floor accumulates leaves in autumn before eventually realising that we do 99 of our work with just a half dozen tried and trusted favourites Dare I opine that some tool manufacturers have a well proven marketing strategy that reads Invent a problem convince the world that they have the problem sell them a solution to the problem That s maybe why we have toolboxes full of tools of which it can best be said that the marketing was cleverer than the tool and we fell for it Cynical Moi It only takes a few moments to examine the contents of your toolbox and to decide if you couldn t get by with a tool you already own maybe with a bit of a re grind or with a minor modification here and there And there s almost bound to be a tool or two that turned out to be so useless when you got it home that it is best viewed as a steel resource for re grinding into something more useful Just think about it We can all find ourselves in situations where a bit of thought beforehand is helpful I recently walked myself into one where lack of forethought left me having to do quite a bit of thinking on my feet In summary I had arrived to do a demo and found that not only had I failed to prepare my demo bowl blank with a recess which I normally simply drill on a drill press I had also failed to pack my Forstner bit to enable me to create said recess on the lathe I had no faceplate no screw chuck but a large and impatient audience

    eaten without further cooking We soon found that disease bacteria such as these were not recoverable from wooden surfaces in a short time after they were applied unless very large numbers were used New plastic surfaces allowed the bacteria to persist but were easily cleaned and disinfected However wooden boards that had been used and had many knife cuts acted almost the same as new wood whereas plastic surfaces that were knife scarred were impossible to clean and disinfect manually especially when food residues such as chicken fat were present Although the bacteria that had disappeared from the wood surfaces were found alive inside the wood for some time after application they evidently do not multiply and they gradually die They can be detected only by splitting or gouging the wood or by forcing water completely through from one surface to the other If a sharp knife is used to cut into the work surfaces after used plastic or wood has been contaminated with bacteria and cleaned manually more bacteria are recovered from a used plastic surface than from a used wood surface Manual cleaning in our experiments has been done with a sponge hot tap water and liquid dishwashing detergent Mechanical cleaning with a dishwashing machine can be done successfully with plastic surfaces even if knife scarred and wooden boards especially made for this Wooden boards but not plastics that are small enough to fit into a microwave oven can be disinfected rapidly but care must be used to prevent overheating Work surfaces that have been cleaned can be disinfected with bleach sodium hypochlorite solutions this disinfecting is reliable only if cleaning has been done successfully The experiments described have been conducted with more than 10 species of hardwoods and with 4 plastic polymers as well as hard rubber Because we found essentially no differences among the tested wood species not all combinations of bacteria and wood were tested nor were all combinations of bacteria and plastics or hard rubber Bacteria tested in addition to those named above include Campylobacter jejuni Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus We believe that the experiments were designed to be properly representative of conditions in a home kitchen They may or may not be applicable to other plastic and wooden food contact surfaces or to cutting boards in commercial food processing or food service operations but we have no reason to believe that they are not relevant except that not all plastic surfaces are subject to knife scarring Before our first studies had been published they were criticised incorrectly for not having included used knife scarred cutting surfaces We had been careful to include used surfaces and so were surprised that others who did later experiments and claimed to have refuted our findings often had used only new plastic and wood Although some established scientific laboratories say their results differ from ours we have received multiple communications from school children who have done science projects that have reached essentially the same conclusions that we
