Just A Shake:

Pewter Salt Shaker

Prerecorded Demonstration

This prerecorded video demonstration will cover the fabrication of a pewter salt shaker with compression lines. The shaker will be made through simple forming and fabricating techniques in 16-gauge sheet pewter. Hydraulic-press compression will create decorative details in the form of the shaker. The techniques shown in this demonstration are welding, soldering, hydraulic-press compression, drilling, refill port and stopper construction, and surface texturing. NOTE: This project does not require previous experience, but it does require access to metalworking tools.

Suitable for all skill levels. 

Fee: $45. Participants will receive a materials list and the prerecorded demonstration video. They will have unlimited access to these materials for 30 days from the date of purchase.
