|Mini periodic table table for Popular Science.|
In early 2003 I got an email from an editor at Popular Science column asking if I'd like to write a monthly column. Of course I said yes, and the second article (in the August, 2003 issue) is a story about lost wax casting as I did it when I was fifteen or so. For the photographs in the article I made a few little periodic table tables out of various metals: This one is made of silver (about $50 worth), and I also made ones out of copper, zinc, and bismuth.
