Step 1: Gather your Implements
-Titanium sheet, 7.5"x19"x.035"
-Welder (TIG or Spot Welder)
-Work holding equipment
-Autodesk Inventor or another 2D vector design program.
Step 2: Design
Step 3: Cut the Parts
Step 4: Join the Parts
Some tacks can be made with a spot welder, though for edges this thin, a precision TIG welder is called-for. Titanium can often be welded without filler if there is enough contact area.
All points can be welded at this time except the front center, where the two ends come together. This must be done after the metal has been bent into roughly the final shape. Do not weld where the pieces cross in the middle. The parts need to move freely when being bent and can be tacked afterwords.
Step 5: Forging
You need only heat those parts and bend them until they don't resist. Uneven heating will produce an irregular curve, so keep your eyes on the orange metal and keep the flame moving.
