It had to be Done... So I started it!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
The time came that it had to be done! The scraps and pieces laying about..... a perfectly good welder with some time... and the dream would reshape
the iron into something WONDERFUL!

A picture abstract of a bbally design!










The first weld seam.... when the arc comes to the metal the beast that was laying in pieces starts to take shape!












Slowly it becomes recognized as something to put fire to food!











Stay tuned in..... she leaves for the powder coater next week and I begin the trailer she will rest on... complete with dutch oven clam shell and all the trimmings!

'til we talk again, do a project the temperature is perfect!

I wish I could weld. Im a carpenter of sorts. I dont think a smoker built from wood would last very long.
