  • Small-ish Projects for High Schoolers

    Hi all-

    I'm searching for small-ish welding or metalworking projects for high school juniors and seniors. It would be great if the projects had an agricultural "feel" to them. Thanks in advance!

    perhaps a small gate using items found around a farm,to add character to it.such as horse shoes,branding irons crossed over at a x shape, a tree using various size round bar bent to mimic branches .you get the point.

      Furniture using tractor seats. I make most of my own furniture out of sq tubing which works good. Or even other farm "found" opjects too.

          im a junior in highschool and i just got done with my 6 shank disk chisel in shop class.
          tool boxes would be a good project.
          i made one earlyer in the year.
          how much time do you have to make your project??

            Look at the top of your screen .... point to "Industries and Interests", find "Welding Projects" and click. Several things with instructions and plans at the top; then off to the right on that page is a link to many pages of ideas and concepts (no plans on these, you take an idea and do your own engineering and designing).

                    I built a feeder out of sucker rod, angle iron and a 55 gallon drum my junior year in HS for vo-ag. Big strike going on with the rod manufacturers so I was stuck welding with what I could get. I can't recall what it was now (been 30 years) but it was supposed to be the same as 6011 only it had a black flux. The angle was galvanized and the flux smelled like burning hair. I wasn't real popular for a while.

                    Do it right, do it once. And in all things ya get what ya pay for.

                              A rod holder. It was my first welding project after learning the basics.

                              Basically, it's a box, with 4 slots that hold rod on an angle, and a larger box where the stubs end up!
