''Receiving her inspiration and training from earlier artisans who were influenced by the simplistic but powerful native Southwestern tin crafts found on crosses in cemeteries around Big Bend National Park, Fern Rae Abraham hoped that this title would help her readers discover the joy in working with tin. This metal is truly versatile and plentiful. Basic solder can be used in its construction. Tin Craft is tailored to those who might wish to try their hand with a minimum of expenses. There is a ready supply of tin cans, with larger containers being available if one is industrious enough to befriend the cleanup crew at a larger restaurant. Common household tools can be used, with the exception of a soldering iron. But its cost will be offset because one can use inexpensive acid-core solder to do most any assembly task. The title abounds with excellent ideas concerning decoration and ideas for frames and such. But its real strengths are the simple but powerful designs (flowers, leaves, birds, Nativity motifs, etc.) that are included. The goal in such presentations is to make readers aware of the possibilities and to hopefully influence them to experiment and try their own creations. This is clearly a delightful book that offers the reader the potential of many hours to have some fun in the design and manufacture of their own tin creations.'' --Chuck Hamsa, Recreating History
