Tabs Are It!

Today I’m teaching a new class that I have looked forward to for some time. Tabs Are It!

This technique has something for multiple levels of participants. It can work for someone who has never previously walloped a piece of metal or for the more advanced metal worker. For the former, we are simply cutting the tabs with shears. The tab plate can then be riveted to a back plate if desired.

Tabs - no saw For the latter, sawing can be simple or intricate.


I’ve been excited about the variety of looks this technique produces and think it’s just right for those who do not want to solder.

Look for more pieces done in this style.
