Tins 2004- 2005- 2006 

We get free tins in the mail, you know the ones with CDs in them and we just toss them out. Don't do that.

Those tins are blank canvases that you can create upon. This is the index for some of the tins finished in 2004. There will be links to the New Projects area where you can see the making of these tins.

Scroll to the bottom for Demos on How-To make tins the Rock and Roll way.
