    Ian Swanwick sent us this nice photo of a fantastic Percolator build. His construction notes follow:
    Swanwick Percolator
    “Thanks [Glen] for the compliments, it really did turn out well and your instructions were excellent.

    “The finish is 3 coats of Minwax oil based stain ‘honey 272’ with sanding in between, followed by 2 coats of Minwax polyurethane fast drying ‘clear satin’. The polyurethane was left over from a few years ago and I don’t think I’d use it again – too hard to get an even finish.

    “I plugged the screw holes on the sides and they are very hard to see with the stain. For the grill I substituted brass screws for the exposed heads as I think they look a little better.”
