So A while ago, I decided it was time to learn how to weld. It has been driving me crazy the last yr. or so not knowing how to do weld. First off ” My hats off to you Professional Welders! Darn, I did not think it would be this hard! My welds are bad, the only way to make them look good is a grinder.
I am getting ready to start an outdoor dining table with the base made of metal and top made out of wood. It will have two pieces of granite recessed into the wood that matches the granite in our outdoor kitchen.
So this was my first welding project ever, man did I learn a lot. I think I like woodworking more…. LOL…. I learned all about how much I have to learn.
The frame is metal 1” x 1” and the shelves and drawer are wood. I spray painted everything black. The machine is a Miller-Matic Mig. It runs on 220 volts & is a great machine. The metal chop saw is a Milwaukee 14inch. I have a 8 gauge 25’ extension cord as well. I made a recessed tray for the Bottle of gas.
Fun project but glad to be done.
Back to the shop, tomorrow for some 100% wood projects.
Thx for looking.
