The jig allows me to lay out the coppered shells and glass pieces in a perfectly squared space and solder them in place, knowing that the angles were all straight. The second piece came out a lot more exact (although unfortunately the photo did not!):

Still plugging away on the Metropolis piece, I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with that one. I think it's a few more firings away, then I just have to lead it up and figure out how I want to display it. Maybe I'll get The Scotsman to build a light box for it? Pin It Now!
