In the past two years ive learned enough about metalwork, welding and construction  to make furniture for my own house as well as making tables etc for selling. I can not describe to you the feeling that gives me. Im not telling you this to brag or…

You Have To Start Somewhere!

Everything you do needs practice! Unless you are a naturally gifted human that can understand all concepts of a process all at once then practice is the only way to learn. I know, im sorry i dont have any fastrack suggestions. Someone asked me to make a Darth Vader wood burner as they were and are all over the internet at the time.
