Once upon a time there was.....the journey from sheeting to cuff

A few days ago I received a request from a lady for a copper cuff,
but not for the wrist but for the upper arm.

Since I have never done I am sure one I will enjoy the challenge.

ok, let's start with a 200 x 300 m 1.5 mm/  15 ga copper sheeting.

roughly sawed out 300 x 40 mm, pretty sharp at the edges
my fingers told me.

the 4 corners cut of and the edges straightened,
shortened down to 27 cm

After one round hand filing and three rounds with 
my dremel with different polishing wheels,
the edges and corner are nice and smooth.
Don't want my customer to cut herself :)

... to be continued...
