I had a piece of 14 gauge mild steel left over from a welded table project I completed late last year, and came up with the idea that the scrap could be put to good use by creating a pair of complementary steel planters. The total build time for this project was just under two hours, and the finished product proved well worth that minimal investment.
This is the first project I welded at TechShop (www.techshop.ws) which truly has a superb welding setup as you'll see in some of the pics.Required Materials
- 14 gauge mild steel (purchased as salvage w/ lots of aging and character)
- Plasma cutter (or grinder with cutoff wheel)
- MIG welder
- 4-1/2" grinder with sanding disc
- PPE (leather gloves, welding helmet, safety glasses, jeans and long sleeves)
