Beginner projects

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

If they're only for use while running, then no big deal. But if your FIL trolls those reels from those holders, you could have a serious problem on your hand if they break and his $1,000 saltwater rig goes for a swim in the Atlantic...

Just saying-


No trolling, just storage. No rack mounted to a fiberglass lip would hold an 800lb tuna... :lol:

Finished another beginner project this weekend. Pretty happy how it turned out and my MIG technique is getting much better. There is no replacement for burning wire to get better that's for sure. Now we can creep on neigbours in style... :)

Just curious if the table tops are made from oak van truck flooring? I have done work in a local plant that manufactures it and have heard of people finishing it but have never seen the end results. Whatever you used it all turned out very nice. :?:

No, I found some cheesy really old 70's or 80's coffee tables and just refinished and re-purposed them to these.
