A Sunday of Welding

Intro to WeldingSean Murray

This Sunday was our first Intro to Welding of the year.

Yvonne welded a sculpture of a bicycle, complete with wheels, saddle, kickstand, and very accurate tubes!

This was an awesome session, with all of our young welders showing lots of thoughtfulness towards one another and their work.

Oscar does some precision bandsaw-ing.

Projects ran the gamut from sculptures (like Oscar's MineCraft tiki mask) to furniture (like Ishwari's stool). 

Ishwari and Diana finish off a stool.

We got to break out lots of the big, charismatic tools, like the grinders and the portable metal bandsaw.

Jonah makes the frame of a table. It'd be mixed media, steel and wood.

What better way to spend a Sunday?

Rachel grinds a bevel onto a piece before welding.
