So, I have discovered that making things out of tin is extreme fun. This summer I have had the opportunity to work with Mike Runyon in the Tin Shop at Sauder Village in Archbold Ohio. Thanks to Mike's extreme patience and teaching skill, I have been able to make some items using historical techniques and tools. I have made a couple of tin cups, a tray, and best of all, cookie cutters. My fave has to be free form cutters that are soldered to a back plate. I have uploaded a pic of the shop and also a pic of a manatee, lady gnome, a shark, and a pug face cookie cutter.
