Hard at work on the trophies!

I am currently making the trophies for the carteret county trash trawl. This requires me to melt down aluminum cans in our forge, then pour them, and finally sand them down. Then they are ready to be drilled and tapped, and mounted to our driftwood. The winner of the trash trawl (and 2nd and 3rd place) will earn one of these trophies made almost entirely out of recycled goods!

Here’s how it works:

Melt cans


pour them

sand them (this is so boring that I didn’t take pictures)

drill and tap
