Thanks to Sam for demonstrating the project for this Instructable.

The next step is to roll the joined sheet around a can or some other round object to put a curl in it to make it easier to shape.

Then, shape the sheets around the pot for which you wish to make a stand/windscreen.

Using the shop scissors, trim to the proper height, cleaning up the edges, but be sure and leave a small tab.

Fold this tab over to lock the ends together.

Attach open ends with paper/binder clips (make sure they are metal! -- remember this screen will get hot!l)
