    Did you have to melt down aluminum and copper to make this?

    You make great projects. People have been commenting how they aren't instructables, but the only thing you should take from this is that they want to know more. You're teasing us with such cool stuff, and we want to know more. Express your knowledge of metal fabrication to the community. I'm not saying you should necessarily edit these, but I would love to see a full Instructable on your field of basic metalworking. I'm not trying to criticize negatively, I'm trying to be constructive. Keep up the great crafting

    Hey! I just started submitting this morning. I tried to submit a photo only vs. a step-by-step. I guess I submitted it wrong... I will see if I correct it. I do plan on documenting some future projects for step-by-step instructables...

    Wasn't trying to be mean, or disrespectful. I meant it when I said it looks nice, just was hoping for info on how it was done. Mold, smelting the aluminum etc.

    No worries! It is 'machined' I guess... lots of cutting with a bandsaw and hacksaw... edges cleaned with a router, drilled the big hole (VERY messy), and hand peened the handle. I etched the hammerhead to get the cast look.

    *see if I CAN correct it...

    Thanks! They are fun to make. I make them in 1.5" pendants and up to this size.
