Steel Vase by cammers on instructables.com
A steel vase can drastically change the look of your indoor or outdoor setting. It is eye-catching and unusual – which is perfect for a modern look.
On Instructables.com, you can find this specific step-by-step project that shows you how to use basic steel sheets to create angular and funky vases.
For this project you will need sheet metal – preferably a large sheet of at least a metre square. To create the vase you will need to mark out panels of the vase, as this tutorial focuses on angular edges instead of having a rounded base.
You can play around with the style of sheet metal – a checker plate sheet would give a unique aesthetic, as would steel mesh!
