This box project almost killed me, largely because of the time constraints I was under because I went home for break week.
This is when I thought the hammering texture was a great idea and would save me a bit of time. Boy was I wrong - though in the end I was happy with the texture. This was in the beginning when I was still terrified of soldering giant pieces like this.
Bottom soldered! No disasters yet!
So then after a long discussion with Kye about how to do the lid, it evolved into this.... I was skeptical that her suggestion for the lid would be easier/faster but it actually was in the end. A lot of steps, a lot of soldering but fairly simple to do.
All the edges are done, ready for patina!
