Chris is right, some times it is better to drop kick our less than best work into the waste bin than spend precious time trying to fix it. There is always some to learn from the things that did not work out the way we wanted.
yes,but ..... i had to do it to figure out when it was and was not worth the effort. I have this piece that was ugly now after a lot of effort - it is super ugly! :Psrc="http://ceramicartsda...lt/tongue.gif"> - I keep it to remind me.
VERY Smart to plan ahead !! Plan for the worst then hope for the best. If i lived in tornado or hurricane country - I'd have big heavy bins of some sort or surround the chemicals with cheap cement blocks -on the bottom floor, in an outside shed (maybe dig the ground a bit lower inside the shed ) or use a basement if there is one- take the chemicals out only when in use or store small amounts for one or 2 uses out of the bins. also consider the possibility of flooding with storms.
Earthquake strapping, meuseum putty and cabinet locks are a good first step.
We "only" worry about earthquakes out here. Sturdy plastic containers do the trick in cabinets shelves that are made earthquake proof . Then it's the finished works that are of the most concern..
