Well I'm going to see how this goes for a prototype. I plan to do it again, just want to make sure my dimensions are right.
I made the main part from one piece and bent the two sides and the end. I did weld the bottom on but have not snapped a pic of it.
Al & Don, I did note your points and will work that in when I build the final version. The one I have pictured is simply for mockup. What you both said makes sense and I will attempt to try and work in those points when I build the final version. I did try the bending two "lips" and burning them together and it made for a really nice bead.
