Furniture - New Endtable - English Wheel

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?

Thanks Motox. Being curious and learning about sooo many things, it's just not cost effective to by high end equipment unless I know I'm going to use it a lot. I've got to say it's been a bit of an adjustment for me to be called a craftsman or even (gasp) an artist. I am learning to accept these compliments but in my mind I'm just making stuff.


It was a complement :)
I struggle to do things "artistically" - I'm a math guy...same problem :D

I feel your pain.
one step at a time. sure there will be some backsliding but it happens. i still find myself browsing fireball tools looking at squares and straight edges... the struggle is real.
