Let's Get Started
To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.
Measure the dimensions of metal you will need to cut: Measure the bottom of the wooden tray, adding 1" in length and width to allow for extra lining up the tray walls.
Cut your marked lines using the Dremel Saw-Max and SM510C Metal Cutting Blade. Tip: When cutting metal, wear work gloves and eye protection to avoid injury. Be sure to secure your workpiece to a tabletop with a clamp before cutting.
Mark lines in all 4 corners of the sheet metal, 1/2" from the edges and make cuts 1/2" deep. Tip: Use the A550 Shield Attachment for increased comfort from sparks. You still need to wear proper safety gear- work gloves and eye protection.
Using the edge of your tabletop as your guide- fold 3 of the 1/2" walls of the lining to your solarium.
Lay a small piece of wood inside the lining to help you complete your last fold. Lay your sheet metal lining into a wooden tray. Add terracotta potted plants and water. Tip: Folding a perfect crease may be difficult. Once you have set the metal lining in your tray, you may need to pound into place using a rubber mallot.
