Burls Art is back with a pretty insane new build. Dude has already tackled everything from making guitars out of colored pencils and salt, and now he’s got one made from 1,000 aluminum cans. Burls Art took DIY to the extreme for this too and even made his own furnace to melt the cans down. The result is fantastic, but the process behind it all is arguably way more interesting.
“I’ve made plenty of guitars out of weird materials, but this project required a pretty extensive amount of research to even attempt,” he says. “Working with propane furnaces and molten metal that can get above 1,800°F can get really dangerous really fast, so I’ve taken safety precautions very seriously for this project.”
