Welding....OH YEAH

For several years now I
have wanted to learn to
weld.
 
Yep, you read it right.
My BF Chris showed me a
few weeks ago how it is done
then Sunday he let me loose in the
garage with this piece.
 
Hey Mark (my brother) this is a piece you
found years ago that I took
home and it has been in one
flowerbed after another all this
time....
The issue with this piece is I had to
either bury the bottom in the ground
or place a heavy rock on it
so that it would remain standing since the
side that extends outward makes it heavy
on the end...yep, it would tip over
a lot of the time.
 
 
My idea was to have a piece come up from the center
which would also go down in the ground like
a spike. The piece I added is taller also and
I have had several parts like you see here
already. Going to be awesome with a vine
growing up it.
Sorry for the teaser here but I don't
have a pic of it finished yet!
I really want to put it in the ground to
take that pic and I have not
gotten there yet!
 
But I need to show you a couple of pics
of me at work!
LOL
 
 
Mark is probably reading this and wondering
WHO would ever hand me something like
that to play with!
 
Check out those sparks!

 
Plus, I used a chain saw to cut
wood (first time ever)....on the
same day.
And I still have all my limbs!
 
Thanks for stopping in,

I've often wished I could work with more than just wood.... but not sure I want to weld.
