  • A newbie introduction and an artsy welded project

    Hi folks!
    This is Billy.
    I run Slab-Fab-Studio here in Asheville (Weaverville),NC.
    I make welded steel and cast concrete furniture.
    I don't really consider myself a welder... I can weld metal together, but I know there is a lot more to it. I'm enjoying fabricating some cool stuff. I am also enjoying perusing this forum. Lots to see, lots to know, lots to learn.
    Thanks to everyone who posts here for the great input!
    Looking forward to further perusal of the Miller welding forums!

    I am running a Millermatic 135 to do my welding right now.
    I have auction bids on a Millermatic 210 and a Spectrum 375 plasma cutter due to pan out or not this Monday.
    If you are interested... check out my site
    For my wackier welded found art site check out

    Sorry if I'm coming off as too self promotional... I'm truly just excited about making stuff...

    Anywhoooo... here's a project, a art bar console shelf that I brewed up.. 24"x14"x36"H
    3/16th" plate steel (Briwaxed finish), 1/2" and 3/8" bent and ground round bar (clear lacquer finished)

    Have a great 3 day weekend!

    Nice Work! I own a concrete countertop business in Michigan. I am just getting into some furniture to! I made a cool bench a few weeks ago! I also make steel sculptures. Keep up the good work. It is work like that that will bring concrete and steel into the future! It is hard for people to take the idea of concrete from the driveway to in the house till they see how beautiful it really can be!
