WELDING 301: CHANDELIERS - 5 hours

275.00

IN THIS 300 LEVEL SPECIAL PROJECTS CLASS WE WILL FOCUS ON CHANDELIER BUILDING.

Welcome back to the metalshop! Putting together the skills and techniques you started learning in your 101 and 201 classes, we will work on making a coffeetable or sidetable.   Going through the process of making a light, you will make a drawing of your light, choose your metal, put together a cut list, set up and weld your piece and attach a socket kit.  

We will introduce lots of tools: carpenter's square, combination square, tape measures, rafter square, right-angle magnets, caliper, etc.  We will work on precision: getting our tables to be flat, square, and level.  We will brush up on your welding skills and go over finishing techniques for your light.

Students can make a chandelier, pendant lamp, table lamp, or any sort you can design.
