I'm totally into Arts and Craft...anything interest me. I've been looking into metal art...but not being able to weld for lack of equipment was a major drawback...being surfing for a cheap welding kit...but all the prices were way... to high for me. Imagine my excitement when instructables put up this challenge...and the prizes!!! wow! My mouth is still drooling.....so please pretty please...VOTE FOR ME :-).
Below is my metal and wood art. I used the wood part cause ...i actually did this before the All metal boat...http://www.instructables.com/id/All-Metal-Wall-Art-Sailing-Boats/
So i didn't think of soldering. for those of you who don't want to go the wood way...check out my boat instructable and go the soldering way.
Anyway it was a chance for me to practice my lap joints :-)
Step 1: Materials
square 1/2" wood dowels
nail / hammer/ flat screw driver
rotary tool like dremel (optional...you could opt for the hard work and go the only nail and hammer way)
oil based wood stain
Hot glue gun or double stick tape
