Types of Projects:
Steel Mailbox: Make a strong but subtle impression with this handcrafted mail box. This all day class will guide the student through producing an all steel, riveted, classic mailbox. Students will gain experience in the use of a slip roll, break, hole punches, and chasing work. A clear lacquer finish is encouraged to best show off the material, however the mailbox may be painted at home if desired. Open to all levels. Experience in chasing steel or copper is a plus. This isn't your typical box store paper thin metal box, this one will last. #builttolast
