You can do this! I would recommend starting with some thin Aluminum about 1 to 2 mm thick and see what you can do. I love Aluminum because you can polish it to a mirror shine, get a brushed finish or even Anodize it. If possible find a real metal supplier, they will give great deals on scrap pieces that are to small for other customers. Unless your perfect the first time out? do a second and third project. Each one will get better. Pick a simple pattern at first and try not to chose anything with tight inside corners as they can be hard to get into with files.
Please visit my build log for more detailed pictures of the start to finish of these pieces.
