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
Aluminium sheet
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
<p>hi Shazni,</p><p>I joined Instructables just to learn how to make your beautiful project. However, I can't access the Word document called Tin Punching. I get an &quot;Access Forbidden by Administrator&quot; message. Could you add that critical information in the steps so we can learn about tin punching? Many thanks, JulieLovejoy</p>
<p>I'm honored that my project has inspired you! You need to be a pro member to download files. Check your inbox :-)</p><p>Please post a picture of what you do. Would love to see it!</p>
<p>Very good ....</p>
<p>Most welcome. Kindly share your more work to me if possible. </p>
<p>Fabulous. Love it! Can't wait to try this.</p>
<p>Thanks! would love to see what you come up with :-)</p>
I need to post some of my metal art adventures. It took a lot of money and hard work to aquire my tools and equipment so I do sympathies.
<p>Love to see your stuff. Perhaps you can post some pictures??? </p>
This is incredible - I absolutely LOVE it...love love love it!
:-D.. Thanks! An old family friend of mine loved it too and asked me to make one for her recently ..so going to do it again for her :-)
This is beautiful! Your work is amazing! Thnaks for sharing! <br>Sunshiine
Thanks :-)...i really like how the light shines through the tin punching...trying to incorporate it into another lamp i'm doing for my cousin....will try and post an instructable soon
I can't wait to see it! I will be making one of these when we get settled into a new place. Right now my place is a night mare! I hate the mess but love the look afterwards! <br>Sunshiine
Thath's so awesome! Nice idea with the LEDs!
thanks...if you do it and fix leds...please pretty please take pics and do an instructable with it...i don't know how many leds to fix with a battery and an on off switch.
wowww.... you've my vote for that.. !! :) <br>although the tin punching thing is gonna require some hard work i suppose :) <br>
Thanks a lot! :-) well...if you have a small drill...which is like about 25-30 dollars...it's a snap...(if you live in asia like i do ask an aunt or someone abroad to bring it for you and pay them. make sure its 220V ..that means avoid US and Canada). Or try stacking all the same designs up like in step 3 ..tape them up and hit your frustration/ anger out :-D. ..with a nail and hammer ...good luck!
Thanks!...please don't forget to rate...and if you like it to vote :-) i've entered in the above 3 contests.
