2 Beginner Welding Projects!
If you can't find good beginner welding projects then let me help you solve your problem right now...
When you are new to welding you have a certain enthusiasm that cannot be found at any other time, this enthusiasm means you literally want to weld everything in sight, the problem is that this enthusiasm can also quickly disappear if you don't see the fruits of your labor.
Beginner Welding Projects Part 1:
One of the ways to keep that enthusiasm while also honing your welding skills is to carry out welding projects, ones that are perfectly suited for beginners. To help you with your welding there are two beginner welding projects.
For both of these welding projects for beginners you will need a MIG welder.
Small Welding Project: Workshop Shelving
For this beginner welding project you need thirteen gauge steel sheeting and a small piece of angle. To make your shelving simply cut the steel sheet to the length you wish to have the shelf then cut the sheet to eight hundred millimeters in width (31.5 inches). After you have the shelf cut to size you need to bend the sheet by ninety degrees at four hundred millimeters on the width (15.75 inches).
Once your shelf has taken shape you now need to create the brackets to keep the shelf on the wall, for this take the angle and cut it into four lengths of three hundred and fifty millimeters (13.75 inches). You will need to cut one end of each angle at a forty five degree angle. After this you can put two of the angle pieces together at the forty five degree cut to make a clean ninety degree angle and weld, repeat this with the other two angle pieces.
Now you can drill two holes in one side of each bracket, this is where the bracket will be screwed to the wall. After this you're now ready to weld the brackets to your shelf so you have your very own shelf for your workshop.
Beginner Welding Projects Part 2:
Big Welding Project - Workshop Bench
For this project you need a six gauge steel sheet and fifty millimeter by 50 fifty millimeter (1.96 x 1.96 inch) box section.
Firstly you need to cut the box section in to three pieces of the length you wish your table to be, after this you need four lengths of box section at the width you wish your table to be. You will now need to cut four pieces to the height you wish the legs of your table to be.
Take two lengths pieces of box section and two width pieces and weld together to make a rectangle frame for your table. After this weld your four legs on to the frame, ensuring that it is symmetrical in size so one leg is not longer than the other.
You now have a table frame but your legs need support so take the two extra width pieces and weld them on the width between two legs at each end, three hundred millimeters off the ground. Take the extra length of box section remaining and weld this between the two supporting width pieces at the bottom of the legs, ensuring the length is welded in the center of the table.
Now all you need to do is cut the steel sheet to the same size as the table frame and weld it on the top and you have a table for your workshop.
I hope you found these two welding projects for beginners helpful. See our welding plans for more quality welding ideas too!
