OT: First Welding Project

3858 Views 7 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  CarlM
I finally got off my butt and started doing some projects. First one is a wine rack made for a friend's birthday. The top is a 12" granite tile that matches tiles that he just used for his kitchen countertop. The rack is painted with a hammered bronze finish.

My welds are still ugly beginner welds. So for the most part it's weld... grind... weld... grind... I'm getting great practice with the angle grinder!

The hardest thing on this project was trying to get all the right angles square. I need lots more clamps, corner clamps, magnets, and jigs to make this easier.

Anyway, I thought it turned out acceptable for the first project.

Nice Job! Are you using a MIG welder? I've been thinking about getting a small MIG to start. I haven't welded since high school. I've always been an artisan in one way or another.
