Picture of MATERIALS
What you will need:
1 Altoids tin case with a lid that has no embrossings, or engraved text. It should be flat.
1 Xacto knife
1 coat hanger
1 pair of needle nose pliers
1 pair of regular flat head pliers
sand paper ranging from 100 grit to 2000 grit( for maximum style and performance)

Step 2: The lid

Get your knife and cut the lid where you see the black line so it should look like this:

Step 3: The grill

The grill
Take a coat hanger and cut the hook of of it then bend the hanger with the two pliers so it should look like this. You want to make the grill act like a "spring" so when you put the grill in place, it won't come out unless you squeeze the ends of the grill together.

Step 4: Assembly

After you finish making each part, assemble the grill so the grill fits snugly inside the brim of the Altoids tin case. Put the lid back on. It should close all the way if made properly. then sand the product so it looks like the images below. That is optional! You're done!

This is the finished grill! The spill is from Reiley. He accidentally poured too much fuel into the grill. But that's okey.
