      Hi Karen, I used tin snips but gave up because they made short choppy cuts. This metal was very thin and I was able to use a cheap pair of scissors that I didn't care to dull by cutting the metal. Hope that helps!

      We've used a grinder with cutting wheel. It seems to cut cleaner without warping the tin.

    Looks great but I have dogs that run around and this would be a disaster waiting to happen! I can easily imagine them ending up with stitches.

      Thanks Susan. We have 3 dogs that run around our yard. They've never been interested in messing with it and we've had no problems with it being a danger to them. My kids have also handled it when we've bring it out/put it away for the season, no problems. Hope that helps.
