Wednesday night was the last of the welding classes I had been taking at 3rd Ward. In the intro class they had us work on a student-y like object.
It was either to be an end table or a stool. Two 45 mitered one inch square tube dquares, with whatever we wanted to connect the two squares together. I choose some round tubing I had leftover from one of the Christmas projects.
I also had a long piece of square 1¾” mahogany left over from Christmas as well. Today I ripped that in half and biscuit-joined just over 12” pieces together to form a single square plank. It was a good use of the material, and I think it’s going to make a handsome piece.
But the best part about Wednesday’s final class was, Tyler my teacher came by, looked at the welds on the round steel and said “wow, those look like they were machine welded.” …pride in mastering a new skill.
