I suppose this is hardly art, but I just learned to use a MiG welder last week, and I was excited to be making something. This steel angle is a purely functional assignment which will be used to set up right angles and as a straight edge in later assignments. My weld is pretty messy, but I guess it's not bad for my second day of welding. I've drawn some cleaner practice beads on flat sheets, but I couldn't really see to keep my lines straight with the welding helmet on, so I tried to do a little at a time.
The right half is ground down to a nice edge (though it has some pits I'll need to fill in), and the rest of the weld is left so it can be graded. After he's graded it, I guess I'll probably grind it down too.
I will accept any pointers anyone can give on my welding or grinding because I definitely need them (more so on the welding).
