Cool Welding Projects You Can Do At Home
4. Yard art
Welded yard art generally takes small pieces of metal – they can be scraps and leftovers – and puts them together into a small decorative object, usually some sort of animal. These animals are then placed in the garden for a bit of fun and decoration.
More often than not yard art isn’t anatomically accurate; the designs are usually caricatures or stylized versions of the animals in question. As such, you can have fun with this project and come up with some creative designs. Alternatively, if you’re not keen on the idea of something with little real purpose, weather vanes are also a great option.
Your costs will be low as you’ll only have to find small, scrap pieces of metal to use, but you’ll still be able to sell yard art fairly quickly as it’s so popular. Your turnaround with this idea will be pretty high, but it’s a lot of fun, so get creative and see what you can come up with!
3. Small metal brackets
Small metal brackets generally fall into the category of being very cheap, very simple and very easy to sell, with a fast turnaround and a low profit. This is really the best idea for very new beginners in the world of welding, or for anyone who wants to make a quick buck.
These items consist of very little more than a few small pieces of metal joined together. A trip through any hardware store will tell you that they have a wide variety of uses, so there’s a pretty large market for them. Once again, push the selling point that these are quality pieces of workmanship, not cheaply made items that will break or need replacing quickly.
Brackets aren’t the only things you can make and sell of this type, although they probably are the easiest. That same trip through your hardware store should give you a whole host of other small items that you can make and sell quickly and cheaply for a small but quick profit.
