Step 7: Buff up.

Buff up using emery paper.

I used mild steel and I like things to get a nice patina, especially when they are handled often so I just gave it a small squirt of furniture polish that contains wax;  if you want to keep it shiny then a quick spray with a can of clear lacquer might be a good idea; but I don't think that it is really necessary.

<br> That's very nice, I sort of want one. The representation is not advanced-level, so in text-book terms the style would be &quot;retro-&quot; or &quot;old-school&quot;.<br> <br> L<br>
Hello,<br> <br> Thanks for the comments.<br> <br> Just in case I ever make another one; What is the advanced representation for ethanol?<br> <br> I can find these <strong>C2H5OH</strong> or <strong>CH3&ndash;CH2&ndash;OH</strong> or&nbsp;<strong>C2H6O</strong> but I preferred the spread out skeleton representation.
<br> Your advanced level cartoon is a bit simplistic for ethanol (pic) but the method is good for more advanced structures.<br> CH<sub>3</sub>CH<sub>2</sub>OH is a good linear representation.<br> <br> L<br> <br> <img src="http://blogs.princeton.edu/chm333/f2006/biomass/ethanol%20structure2.gif">
Cool idea!
Nice gift for those geeky types.
