I felt like I hadn't made any cool projects in a while, Christmas even came & went & all I did was install a ceiling fan for my sister in a room that didn't have any ceiling lights at all before. While crawling thru the attic with electrical wire was rewarding & all, it still doesn't compare to conceptualizing something in your mind and then holding it in your hands. - Or in this case sitting on it:
I decided to make this custom piano bench with my free time. Click the link to see the pictures of the build.
The raw material: American made aluminum.
These are the feet and the part that connects to the seat, They were TIG welded to the legs.
I'm standing on 1 leg & using the other foot on a pedal that controls the heat of the torch, got the torch upside down in the wrong hand and I'm reaching the filler rod in from around the back side of the fixture, all while I hold my breath because the only place I could see from was with my face right in the smoke. It was fun!
Now I've just gotta learn some songs...
