Pedestal Ashtrays part II
So today I worked on the pedestal Ashtrays I previously posted. I found some Nevr-Dull that is probably the same vintage as the Ashtrays. I wanted to clean up some of the corrosion, but not remove all of the patina.

The one ashtray I figured out, had a table top ashtray on top of it. A closer look revealed a couple holes where there was a handle similar to the other ashtray. So I found some aluminum rod in the workshop and fabbed and bent it. I then polished with some Mother's polish. It needs a little more work, but I think it came out pretty good(left one in last picture). You can see in the second picture, that I had used a copper wire to try and make a template for the size.
