One I can't really post about here as the recipient might see it and thus the surprise would be spoilt.
But I can tell you about the other project - another Altoid Tin. This is for Lisa The DBA who should not be confused with Elisa of Scotland nor Liza Nechamkin The Chasing & Repousse mentor.
Lisa also plays several instruments and is in a band. She uses an electronic tuner for her bass git-tar and was using a small cloth pouch for carrying it in her bag.
I had a better idea; a Tin with some chasing & repousse on it.
The first tin we tried was not tall enough - this was a standard Altoid tin. Then I tried round tin but the tuner did not fit the space for the height or the foot print. I then decided to dome the lid of the regular tin and sure enough it would work. All of this was tested over the past few weeks and so this weekend, I started the project.
I took lots of pictures so here is a nice movie of the project with some guitar music of course so turn up the sound and boogie!!.
