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.
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.
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.
That smaller brass/bronze disc is going to be maybe some kind of anannular brooch..
It's really quite simple looking thing and also a full of small dents/scratches, because I have accidently thrown it to brick walls and other wrong places. I'm not going to post it to my gallery, but i try to photograph it later and send then link for you.
Maybe you could use the dents as a part of it. I've seen Chakrams that have teeth, so that they resemble a circular sawblade, and sometimes there are flat teeth so that the Chakram looks like a cog or clock-gear. You could easily just fix the chips by making it look as if you designed it that way.
Here's the video where I saw them [link] , how they were made, how they were used, and then the one guy makes a neat device to throw them from the back of a cart.
