The mold is a bit tricky to work with. First, the pour tube is very narrow, so I have to let the slip dry inside the plaster longer than I normally would. Also, because I'm pouring upside-down, the bottom becomes thinner than the top. To offset that, I let the excess slip drip out for a long period of time and thus beef up the bottom. Last, I have to patch the hole in the bottom while the slip is still somewhat wet. But, it all pays off with a perfect-fit on the lid.

Got the angle bracket from someone else - got tired of tightening clamps.
