Tinplate Girl made a special Valentine's Day gift using the various metalworking techniques she demonstrates on her awesome instructional site. Tinplate Dad got into the act too. He made a small kinetic sculpture you'll see in the second half of the video. Both projects incorporate tinplate, brass wire, a bit of wood, soldering, and mechanical fastening. No glue was used!
Here is where you can read about and see more images of these two tinplate Valentine's Day projects.
