Old Round

Amazing. Anyone still making them?


I remember these so well from when I was a kid. I loved them! I was fascinated when the detail and intricacies and marveled at how such a thing could be done. Thanks for letting me stroll down memory lane!


I was so surprised when I googled "tin can art" and found your web site with the exact furniture I made in 1967 (thanks for your exact date...I couldn't remember when I made them). I used the Woman's Day magazine and it's probably stored in the attic somewhere. I found the pieces I made just about a month ago...a table and chairs, a love seat, and a rocking chair...and decided to use them as Christmas tree decorations. They look great on the tree. It's ironic that my son and his family lived on Beverly Glen for a while but have moved to the valley. So the next time I'm in LA, I will have to stop in at the shop you mentioned. These were really fun to make...I just might get my little needle nose pliers out and get busy again!


My father use to make these after seeing them in a magazine while he was out to sea in the Navy. Unfortunately after many moves they did not survive. He recently passed and I have an old black and white article that is hard to see of him on board the ship making these. They were absolutely beautiful and my cousin still has her till this day. That was 34 years ago.
