It's certainly tough but not indestructible.
Material thickness is about 0.030", just happened to have some laying around and figured I'd try working with and welding it, it's not terribly difficult.

Is it commercially pure? I welded some of that and it welds excellent. 6al4v was a bit tricky.

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?

Actually 0.030" is more like 22 ga, which is thicker than 24. Bent it in a normal finger brake, it bends real easy. Seam around the center is TIG welded, mostly without any filler added.

Thanks,

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.
