What are you most proud of? The hinges have broken on me twice and three times and I ran out of copper so I had to go get some more copper after I broke my etching tool or so I thought, and I guess I am proud of the fact that I learned how to write the seasons in chinesse while learning about hinges.. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? take your time have fun with it an if it breaks then do what i do with my pc and reboot- turn off for a few hours or days or weeks and then come back with a fresh outlook and or idea and or just look at it and rethink what you could of done differently- ie dont bend the hingles so much or beat yourself or the metal up so much that it breaks. :) happy monday

Looks like a labor of love. Can't wait to see the completed project.

That is absolutely amazing! Are the Chinese characters engraved?

two years later and I am still fighting with it.. lol I think I hardened them too much and then forgot how to soften them.. but was just reminded on how to do so.. :) Hopefully I can finish this one this year! :)
