Dear friends of mine were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary and I wanted to make a special gift for them. I, along with a large group of friends and family, were flying in to join up with the couple at a resort in Mexico to mark the occasion. Given the travel, the gift needed to be relative small and packable. I settled on forging a small steel box that could hold photos or other mementos and be personalized. I’d not attempted to forge sheet metal before but thought it might have an appealing hammered look, especially if I used hand-finished rivets to secure the corners.
