It's a RED Bird! Very nice job you did there. It will certainly stand out in a crowd!

I'm looking at that very nice welding job thinking to myself, self, why didn't he mak'em outta 2 by 4s like most folk do. Then I realized the answer.

Because he can.

I really, really gotta get myself a welder and teach myself how to burn holes, stick things together and light assorted objects on fire.

any recommendations on a decent self feeding welding rig for a beginner hack like myself would be appreciated.

thanks,

pete

Slow but steady progress, good job. You know when you build them like that they will never break and probably last forever. He could attach walls without needing much framing or make a really cool slingshot that fires pumpkins out the back door! Simple, clean, solid as dirt.
