In this class you will learn to build a storage box with a hinged lid out of sheet metal. Patterns in a variety of sizes will be available, including standard cigar box size.  Every student will take home a useful box they have built.

Details: there will be an overview of pattern development. We will transfer the pattern onto our sheet-metal. Cut it out with the shear and tin snips. Then we will fold up the sheet-metal into our box and lid. In final assembly we will install hinge pins and close our hinges with spot welds.

  • There is a materials fee of $10 for sheet metal included in the price of class.
  • All skill levels welcome.
  • Participants must wear natural fiber clothing, long pants, closed toe shoes (natural fiber or leather), no stretch fabrics, and long hair tied back.
