Making Kitchenware

WELCOME EVERYONE! Thank you for visiting.

I have had a terrible time trying to photograph things today. Sorry about these bad photos, sometimes you just have to throw in the towel and move on.

I made this tiny strainer out of the smallest screen I could find. Actually someone told me where to get it. I bought it in a paraphernalia shop, yep it's for smoking dope in a pipe.

I dapped the screen first then I made a fold over bezel out of brass to encase the edges of the screen. I left it sort of grungy looking so it would look used.

There is a pattern to the holes in the bigger copper strainer but I wasn't able to capture that in the photo.

I am making lots of copper frying pans and sauce pans. I want to rhodium plate the inside of them when I am finished. I think it will look much better than tinning the inside of them.

On the left are wood cheese boxes I made ages ago.
