Turn an Aluminum Can into an Embossed Metal Box


(Video Link)


Instructables user Mangetout turned an aluminum drink can into a very nicely embossed metal box. In this video, he provides step-by-step instructions on how you can do likewise. Once you look at the finished product, you'll be amazed to think that it was originally an energy drink can.

I've got a cool chopper bicycle with a crappy paint job. I'm stealing that idea to make an embossed tubing wrap. Already have lot's of glue. And cheap to do!

You can make aluminum a bijillion times easier to work with by annealing it. Just heat it red hot, it will become very malleable once cooled. It is very useful for making gaskets.
