How To Make The Mini Metal Foundry
I have been sharing great DIY articles for years now so I thought I had pretty much seen all there is in regards to DIY projects but boy was I wrong! This DIY mini foundry project is easy and cheap to make and best of all, you can cast your own aluminum from old soda cans.
I have always wanted to melt metal and make things from it and now I can. The King Of Random has done it again and has put up a great step-by-step guide on how to make one for yourself for about 20 bucks!
All you need to make this beauty is a steel bucket, plastic bucket, plaster of Paris and some play sand. Go on, have some fun and enjoy making things with your hands. (remember, always wear eye protection and don’t leave skin exposed when melting the metal, see our disclaimer before proceeding).
