Ornate simmer top for alcohol stove...

Having solved most of the technical issues with my alcohol stoves, I then decided to try my hand at a little ornamentation. Here's my first attempt at a "Universal Theme", Moon, Sun, and the blackness of space. It's also a good way of covering that irksome serial code that appears on every cat food can, sometimes in more than one position. The letter "N", my initial, I carved out of a piece of Abalone shell. As it's the only thing made of a non-metal I'll be interested to see if it holds up to the temperatures generated.
