Step 1: Materials
An altoids tin , tin snips , sheet metal ( cutting from a soda can will do ) sharpie , ruler , matches(lighter) cones
Step 2: Cutting
Cut the metal to the size i did 3& 3/16 x 1
Step 3: Marking , and Bending
Mark 1/2 inches in, then from the line u made measure in 2 1/4 then from that new line measure another half inch (you'll have a little bit left ), slide the ruler so you are measuring from the same side u did before and mark the same thing , cut the sliver off , then bend both sides at 90 degrees facing the same way
Step 4: Finishing Up
Put the metal tray/stand across the middle of the tin and put a cone on it , the tin will also act as an ash tray
Step 5: Storage
Simply remove the tray and lay top down inside the tin, a box of matches fits perfectly on top this way , and you can keep a few cones inside too
Step 6: Safety Disclaimer
I forgot to mention u should sand or file the edges of the tray so u dont cut yourself, and be careful as there is nothing holding the cone in place , use on a fire proof or resistant area , i use a 12"x12" sheet of sheet metal
