Welding Brought Me Here

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by looiz, Jun 23, 2016.

  1. Have long admired all the great builds on this site. I have found some inspiration from them and decided to build my own. I figured why not join the forum, it's been so much help reading through some of the builds.

    I started in late Nov 2015, and only worked on it a couple days, then another couple days in late December. Finally found some time to get to work on it again the past couple of weeks, I didn't think I would get this far on it. I would cut up a few pieces here and there soon it became a pile of parts. When I did set up the welder it was mostly all welding with little prep work.

    So close to getting this thing done... will post pics up soon, don't want to be mistaken for spam. Avatar is one of the basic early drawings.

    Welcome! Can't wait to see the finished smoker! I'm the same way, my garage is filled with projects 25% to 90% done I rotate through. Whenever I get them 100% my wife throws a party!

  5. Thank you all for the warm welcome. I feel like building this thing has been a rite of passage in welding and lots of good practice.

    Here's a peek at how it's looking lately. I have been documenting most of the progress, thinking of starting a build thread. Working on getting it cleaned up good enough for paint on the outside and food on the inside.

    Looks like Mr. MIGGY has been busy.  Nice job.  Would love to see the inside of the lower box.
