Guessing you had to Tig weld it together. .030" is about as thick as some wire used in wirefeed MIG. When I read the title I was thinking you had used like 24ga sheet metal titanium but youd need one big brakepress for that. Was it all welds or did you put a few bends in it? If so how'd you manage to bend it or is it like bending thin sheet metal steel?
I ended up making one for an Ipad a few months ago for a charity auction fundraiser thing, it was quite popular.
Did a better job on the welding and more interesting/detailed design bent in the covers to stiffen it.
