    Default Girlfriend's Art

    I have been teaching my girlfriend how to weld, cut, and grind over the past 6 months. She has actually gotten good enough at tig welding to the point that I can actually use her for work parts (paying ones)!

    Anyways we slowed down a little so I told her to make something instead of standing around . And this is what she came up with. Go easy on her it's her 1st project! It's all plasma cut free hand and ground/pollished.

    She doesn't know I posted this yet.
    Don't mind the clutter in the background. That is HER syncrowave 250 I picked up for 600.00

    You are a lucky man.

    The only interest my better half has in my welding is what I can make for her.

    You can tell your GF she did a very good job.

    verry cool.
    if she is going to hang it outside it might be a good idea to atach the spinners with a fishing luer spinner so they will spin in the wind, should look realy cool spinning.
    verry cool she likes playing for now but soon she will take over the shop and it will be all arts and crafts.
    good idea to get her her own syncro, might keep her off yours.LOL
    thanks for the help
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat.
    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    Does she have a sister?
    Heck, "do you have a good relationship???"
    (Oh wait, I'm married... )
    Very cool, she should make a few more stuff like that and try to sell it at the craft show (mother's day is too soon), maybe Christmas???
    I polish my aluminum with a really cool swirl pattern using the flap disk or the scotch-brite pad that sticks to the rubber backing pad...
    I'm not late...
    I'm just on Hawaiian Time

    Default Nice art work

    It always nice to see other artist on this site. I like your girl friend's work, I call my self an artist and would be proud if I had made that. I'm sure she will get even better if she keeps going. But your scrape pile may never be 'yours' again.

    If you had fun making it, you did a good job

    Default Wow

    You guy's are great!

    I showed her the post before I even read it. At first I was called a jerk, and other names..but anyways. She read all your post and was suprised at your comments.

    When I first met her she said she was artistic and I asked if she ever did it with metal, she said no, I can't. I said yeah you can watch! I am not artistic but I can fix and make just about anything. I just can't think about the art stuff.

    We were at the shop today and she was messing with bending ss wire in heart shapes and made something really cool. I hope I opened up the artistic side that has been bottled up for a while. I don't care about sharing my stuff! It's all a good way to get/justify more space!

    Someday I hope I can justify a plasma cam!

    Thanks again. She may be posting on this subject herself. She did get a kick about the sister question.

    No such thing as a scrap pile!
