Build a badass stool in the metal shop! In this class, each student will fabricate a stool from scratch, upcycling a seat from a mid-century Ford tractor for the seat component. This class is intended for students with some beginner level experience that are looking to improve their welding and metal shop skills.
Students will learn how to accurately cut and fit square tube parts to form the legs of the stool. We will use jigs and digital measuring tools to assemble these parts. We will discuss how to minimize the evils of weldment shrinkage and to make your metal projects come out looking their best.
The instructor will provide all materials for the course. Students should wear appropriate metal shop attire: natural fibers and closed toe shoes, preferably boots.
Metalworking 101 and 102, and MIG welding
