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.

:lol:
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.

Super awesome project. I love the unbalanced look.

May I inquire about the surfaces that come in contact with the glass? Is there a softer material that comes in contact with the glass?

bobruddy,
short answer, no. glass is sitting directly on metal. ick, but I have set this piece up in my booth twice a month at local markets for several months without any ill effect.

Honestly, I had initially planned on putting a piece of thin vinyl or possibly cork but nothing fit after final weld up. I fitted things fairly tight because I didn't want the glass to rattle but obviously got it too tight. I was working on a self-imposed deadline and not wanting to cut on the most visible areas of the piece, I left it. In the future I will definitely allow for more space.

thanks for asking.
