A little over a year ago I decided to learn how to weld. I can't really remember why i chose to learn how to weld instead of, say, learning to play the harmonica, but i do remember thinking that welding would be a good skill to have during the zombie apocalypse.
So I picked up a welder, some overpriced steel, and a Ron Covell DVD and got to work. My first project was a welding table. After that I made a welding cart and an air compressor stand. With three shop projects under my belt, I decided that it was time to build my first "real" project; a brewstand.
