What I'm curious about is the menorah.

My grandfather & parets have visited Israel once in the seventies and that was probably one of their souvenirs. We have also one huge bronze casted menorah with turquoise stone setting in the top of one bookshelf, but I found that simpler one when I was cleaning our storehouse few years ago, so there is no real use for it anymore. (I don't even know that is there any Jewish people in this part of the Finland, because they live mainly in the big cities..)

I don't know what I going to made from it, but at least all the parts are attached together only with screws, so it's very easy to take apart.

My home is located quite close to real WW2-fighting places and my grandfather find those big artillery shells before my time, and I got suitable bullet for the smaller shell from some scrap collector guys backyard only two years ago. Smaller ammunition shells are handpicked from shooting ranges and one place where Finnish army organised "tank warfare show" in the nineties.

Bigger Co2 cartriges are taken from my Daisy 44 Pellet Revolver and two smaller ones are from my cousins old model airplane very many years ago. :)

awsome!
yeah i recognize the string of casings are probably from a .22 rifle or a pistol. I also recognize .30-06 rifle casings and I think 50cal casings. no idea on the others.

Yeah.. That string of casings in the bottom is assembled from 9x19mm pistol shells and there is some .22 rifle casings close to four bigger aluminium ones.

I don't know it exactly, but I think that nine green colored large casings are from this gun, [link] because I remember similar things on top of the vehicles in that army show many years ago.. Also that one narrow brass shell near the Co2 capsules is from some kind of heavy machine gun.

Very cool. I wish I had somewhere I could find spent casings from different guns and try and figure out what all they went to.

On the left-hand, centre picture I spy a large circular ring of metal. You should turn this into a Xena style chakram, albeit a rather small one.

I'll be waiting!

Lol.. No need for new chakram, because I already have one what I made from 28 cm width & 2 mm thick titanium disc almost ten years ago. I thinked about Xena instantly when I detect that disc in one metal recycling place near my school. :D

That smaller brass/bronze disc is going to be maybe some kind of anannular brooch..
