Tell us about yourself!
Please add the step of how to insert or affix the blade in this device. It is not mentioned in the instructions, though the blade is referenced in the last sentence in step 3 (",,,installing the metallic strapping tape pieces and fasten them at the wood with the screws. Their purpose is to hold the blade in place.") Is the blade just slipped into the horizontal groove, or do you fix it in place somehow? Is the cutting edge towards the front or rear?

Excellent video: very clear how you make & solve this. Thank you. I also am interested in your eye-catching message device at the end of the video. Do you think you might ever make a tutorial on that? I have watched it many times now but cannot quite get it.

This looks like a fun project! I'm guessing ping pong balls would work as well. I think your garland and Christmas ornament ideas are great. Nice job on the Instructable!
Good info about varying thicknesses. It would be good to try different mils if you are wanting to create deeper "relief" work. Aluminum tape is not expensive, at least in the US. It can be found in the ducting aisle at hardware stores.
Beautiful project, and well-done tutorial. Did you use standard craft acrylic paints?It is also a wonderful technique to use on smaller objects (i.e., a trinket box), without color, to look like forged metal. Thanks for sharing this project!
