Trophies have always been tossed together from workshop refuse. This year I cut up some heavy gauge tube steel from, well I forget from what. And topped it with some huge bulldozer lug nuts that I got at Amble's Machinery and Hardware.
No matter what his trade or profession, I do think a man should know how to weld. My kids are better than I am in this regard, but on a sunny afternoon I hauled out the welder and had at it.
I read in the Oprah magazine once that dressing with confidence empowers you or something. So I try to at least look like I know what I am doing. I guess if you own your own helmet, you are a welder. Just maybe not a very good one...
Well, I've seen worse. They are solid and the ugly welds that look like magma bird droppings are on the back side. With a bit of practice I got my hand in and considered writing 1st, 2nd, 3rd on the tube steel with artistic welds. But decided not to push my luck.
Add some spray paint.
