    tjeffords, do you explain what this means in one of the other sub-forums? I looked in Ammo & Reloading but didn't see anything. Thanks!

    Ok so this is the explanation of The Table -O-Brass!

    I had been thinking one day that i wanted to do something with his 30" piece of round glass that I had. Well i had a military buddy that is a wounded irac vet sobi thought what would be better than make a table fro him entirely made from spent shells. Ones to that couldn't be reloaded for various reasons. Basically a way to fix show him even know something may be broke it can still serve a purpose.

    So I started collecting shells from any where i could get them for free ( I am currently in a low income status).

    I have started laying out the brass so far I will be posting pics here later today. But I am totally open to comments and suggestions. Will post again here in a little bit

    Ok so since I don't currently have internet at the house (it sucks being broke lol) ill post what i can from my phone.

    Here are some pics. Since i can only post 4 pics at a time ill have another with more pics in a post right after this one.

    The first pic is one of the glass it self, the second is a test of random rifle brass around the edge (top view), the third is the side view of the rifle brass test, and the fourth pic is the final design of the pattern.

    If I can find some bees and I think I could do up a patten for it. I might be able to fit either in the center or off to the side some where.
