Kleening Kwikkie

Hi guys... Drilled out a bunch of unwelcome bubbles this afternoon. Just a regular fused piece...1/4-inch blah blah blah. MY QUESTION: what clever ways have ya'll devised for cleaning out the craters after drilling out the bubbles. I'll be re-fusing, adding frit next to the craters. Thanks, pals. PD...

The material I have problems with is my favorite, WOOD. For some reason in my mind it just doesn't work with glass, and I'm a woodworker. I can honestly say I've seen very few pieces of glass and wood together that work for me. Hi Ron... I'm with you on the wood/glass thing. I haven't articulated i...
