That is very exciting. Over 30 years ago I was a fairly serious potter and have done many raku firings but haven't touched clay since moving to New Zealand over 30 years ago. This is a simple way I could get my clay fix. I voted for your instructable.
I was at a party on a beach where there were three Swedish fire torches, each one about six feet tall. They were cut into forths instead of sixths.They were lit while still dusk and the fires grew stronger as night darkened–absolutely magic.
Very cute and ingenious. I voted.

At least we don't have to worry about snakes in New Zealand or most of the other common predators such as foxes etc. We do have hawks. Once one flew overhead when our chickens were in the middle of a big paddock they froze for a minute or so.
It sure was!
Thanks. I like grouping colours too but with some puzzles, especially humorous cartooons, the same colours are scattered throughout the puzzle. I'm working on one like that now.
Beautiful marking gauge and comprehensive Instructable. I think any woodworker would be proud to use it.
Our first egg cost about a thousand dollars, the rest were free. After about three years we sold our three New Hampshire Reds at a poultry show for $20 each but the coop still looks impressive.
Awesome! This approach sounds like way more fun than just doing the edges and then looking for groups of colours. Thanks.

Do you have weights for the dry ingredients? Sai 22 might have used flour that had been stirred up and not as dense as needed. Weighing dry ingredients for baking is always more accurate than cups and spoons. I use strong bread flour but think I'll try your recipe. Homemade pizza dough is great and your photos look good too.
I learned from professionals how to use a window squeegee. It needs to be a good one with a black rubber strip, not one to clean your shower. They are not expensive.First, add a few drops of dish washing detergent to a bucket of water. The detergent will leave the window slippery. You can also add a tiny amount of dishwasher rinse-aid. Then, either with a window cleaning "mop" or just a soft cloth dipped in the water, wet the window and rub all around in circles. Then, drag the squeegee down the window in stripes, overlapping a little each time. It's a lot easier than newspaper and no elbow grease is required.
Good tips if you already have soap scum but my favorite tip is to use shower gel instead of soap—you don't end up with soap scum.
It's better because they peel very easily every time.
Steaming eggs works. It's easy and they peel every time. I first learned about this on backyardchickens.com after adopting three hens. Fresh eggs are even harder to peel when boiled than the old ones from supermarkets. I've tried to convince friends to steam but some are stubborn and prefer to be frustrated trying to peel unpeelable eggs.Spread the word—steam hard cooked eggs! It will take a little stress out of your life.

Good instructable, nice and easy project that could be made by anyone. Congratulations on your Gold Award.
While I do understand your concern, you need to remember that rats and mice find food (or in this case bait) mainly by smell. Birds tend to go by visual cues. Bait that isn't brightly colored and in the bird's line of sight is rarely a problem. Also, the fragrances with which baits have been treated attract rats and mice but do nothing for birds. As a result, birds getting into rodent bait stations and eating the bait is not a known problem in practice.I also should point out that _any_ bait station, including commercially produced ones, by necessity need to provide access for a rat. Since there are birds that are smaller than rats, it is technically impossible to design an effective rat bait station that will keep out birds at the same time.In closing, rats eat bird eggs and young birds, so in practice more birds tend to fail to reach a ripe old age due to rat activity than get killed in rat bait stations.So I agree with ClareBS in that collateral damage among your local bird population is not a valid concern.
