Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

You can pay a lot of money for decorative iron and metal furnishings, or you could learn to make them yourself. Experienced welder Ruth (Welding Basics) presents a good mixture of 25 metal-welding projects, including simple furnishings, garden accessories, and decorative elements. She offers patterns and instructions, but there is no handholding, no list of needed equipment or tools-this book is only for the hobby welder conversant in technique and tool use. Illustrations of final products are nice and large, but there are few instructional photos. Don't purchase unless you already have some basic welding books or there is demand. - Library Journal December 2006
