Overview

Welding made effortless! With simple techniques targeted to a wide and general audience, this guide eliminates the intimidation from an all-too-often technical craft. Rather than creating a manual workbook with elaborate, complicated drawings and instructions, Kimberli Matin takes readers on a journey of creative discovery. With purchased steel rod and bar or found metal parts from a salvage yard, plus basic, easy-to-use tools, she shows how to construct 25 whimsically attractive items. From a garden chair fashioned from an old tractor seat and odd parts to a stunning tri-fold screen and a delicate, filigreed plant stand, these great projects will make welders out of everyone!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Junkyard art is the motivation for learning the welding skills described here. Matin gives the basic techniques of welding metal and provides projects graded by difficulty for household accessories made from scrap metal. The artistic quality is high and reminiscent of handmade wrought iron.
