For xmas one of my wifes sisters had the idea to each make a gift for our gift exchange. Im not great at macaroni art or any other stupid crap, so I told my wife to come up with something I could weld.
The answer was a mitten "tree", ya know to hang your wet hats, gloves etc on to dry.
Not counting filler or gas for the welder I spent ~$35 on each for the steel and powder (powder alone was $20 ea).
I think they came out pretty good, and are WAY better quality than any china made crap for the same, or more, money. Each family loved them, so win.
