I was going to be making some nice window boxes out of wood. When I was surfing the net for some deign ideas I saw some really beautiful copper ones. They run 400 bucks and up. Wow. Then I got to thinking. Why cant I just buy a 15-foot piece of copper gutter and some end caps and make my own? I’m sure there are cool little copper detail items you can buy and just attach like you would with copper pipe (with a torch).

No I’m sure I am not the first person to think this so there must be more to it that this. Has anyone actually done this? If so could you give me some tips please?

Oh. Also I would be attaching it to a brick house if that matters at all.
