  1. Lana, you are the best viewer ever! You always say such nice things and I really appreciate your support. I’m so nervous about this video – what if you all hate it? Can’t wait to get it out there, do another one in 1/10th of the time and do it better. It’s been such a long, trying learning experience. But, hopefully, worth the effort! Thanks, as always. Nancy

  2. Omg I’m so up for your new video….I can’t wait….U are the best teacher out there…and i think I’ve watched every video on you tube….xox

  3. Hi Joy, Thanks so much! Let me know how it goes or if you need some other tips. One note: if you are using thicker metal, the “v’s”, as well as gluing the pieces together would not be necessary – but could still be done. Generally, if there is enough thickness to the metal you can just run the joint file down the edge where the tubing will sit. Hope this helps and let me know when you succeed. Happy holidays. Nancy

  5. Nancy… Thank You So Much! I have been struggling with hinges for awhile. Your video shed some light on what I was doing wrong. Thanks!

  6. Thank you for your hinge video. It helps to know the pearls you provide. To file v’s and use whiteout and use graphite in the tubing while soldering are great tips. Much appreciated.
