    Default Just a shelf - but my first actual project

    So - out of work - so while 'waiting for a call' I built a shelf to fit on top of a second toolbox I have in the garage. Just 1" angle (1/8"), some 3" plate (1/8") and a piece of perforated sheet (actually 14 gauge with .5" holes). I'm satisfied - it's level and square - now I just need to spray it - planning on flat black. One pic of the shelf and one of it 'in place' (not yet sprayed). I used a nice, borrowed Bosch circular saw to cut, a Craftsman angle grinder to cut/debur, a Dremmel to do some finer deburring and my MM211 on 110V with flux core .030 wire.

    Thanks all. I completed a night, 12 session hobby course this fall. Got the bug. Bought two welders. Found a nice source for good priced steel thanks to JMK. Have some ideas about what's next - not quite sure though.

    Outside of welding in the class (Mig, Stick, TIG) this is the first 'adventure' I took on. "Oh the places you go" is right...it's pretty nice to actually 'make' something......and use it.

    Thx to EVERYone on this board who's so supportive.....getting "down that road" is just a little sweeter!

    Joe - love the MM211 - it was flawless for me.

    The class - liked it a ton ... in fact, it was so nice, I decided to take it twice. Signed up for the spring session - hey - 3hrs, once a week...GUARANTEED to be practicing...why not!

    Did pretty much the same class type last summer. Liked it so much I start an advanced MIG class starting next week. Also bought a 211.
