“What is that horrid looking thing in my good Pyrex dish?” Virginia shrieked.
There’s still no development on the hinges yet, so I thought I’d pad out the table’s progress with an update on the triangle which has been merrily rusting away in brine for the past four days. In truth, the triangle had to be hurriedly removed from the brine and a photo opportunity presented itself in a brief moment of winter sunshine.
The triangle will be dried slowly to improve the surface before screwing it to the under side of the pillar and claw. To extend the illusion of age, I have also headed and rusted six screws for attaching the triangle.

What do you mean by "headed?" Are you making your own screws?
Heading is filing the slot and filing the head of the screw flat. In this case, it’s performed retrospectively on machine-made screws to make them appear hand made.
I have entirely hand-filed screws for other pieces of furniture I’ve made, but not on this occasion.
