Isn't a stick welder better for this job?

You're doing a great job. I'm just giving a heads up, plan to vent the combustion gasses some were.

A journeyman stick guy would make an art piece out of a stand without breaking a sweat, but in the hands of a novice the results would likely be utterly discouraging. For those of us educated at the Youtube School Of Welding, a squirt gun gets us in the game...

Cheers!

I might attempt something like this one day. Why miter the corners instead of butting them?

Thanks for all the great feedback, everybody! It really helps keep me motivated.

mikescooling: Check the picture I just posted after this reply. You can see a triangular hole in the front of the kettle; it's symmetrical in the back. My plan was to cover the front holes to redirect the heat backward. This make sense? Think it'll work?

day_trippr: Bingo!

grathan: I mitered them so I wouldn't have "holes" from the open ends of the butt welds. Sure, I could just cap them, but I thought miters would look nicer.

Here's another quick shot of the top of the stand with one of the kettles in place:

doublehaul: We had a pretty brutal winter this year so I had to take a break from the build. But it's starting to warm up and my goal is to finish it up before the NHC in June.

I'm going to attempt this soon as a beginner welder. Do you need to weld the bottom and sides of all of the pieces or just the top like show in this photo?

Weld the top and the sides that you can see, (not the underside), and you'll be good.
Put a slight bevel on your pieces, at each weld joint.
