    ByerlyJ,

    A few questions to help with some ideas,

    1 - What processes has your course covered?
    stick, mig, tig, oxy-fuel (cutting, hard soldering, brazing) , plasma, submerged arc,

    2 - What do you believe your instructor wants to see?
    and does your project need to showcase all of these processes.

    2a - Even smooth welds, good fit-up - (craftmanship)?

    2b - Clever design ideas or new concepts.? (Easier said than done - Apple is a good example)
    I'm no help here otherwise I'd be rich.

    2c - Does your instructor have a particuar interest? (trains, planes, automobiles)
    (ok - may be a bit of apple polishing here)

    Materials used in your project?
    You mentioned nothing big or expensive.

    I don't know what process you have available for your project but - here are a few ideas -

    (Tig) - Stainless steel - use common silverware - cheap at thrift stores.
    Pots, pans, spoons knives, forks.
    Show how you can run small, even tight welds without burn thru or sugaring.

    (Tig, stick, mig) - project better suited for thicker material here.
    Make a name plate or sign using weld bead like the wood names routed out of wood.

    Combine processes - plasma cut several different designs into a few plates and weld into a fire pit having 4, 5 6 or more sides.
    (If plate is too expensive, buy a small Weber bowl type bbq and cut designs into the lid.)
    Make sure it is painted steel and not porcelainized for oxy-fuel cutting.

    Good luck
