Video on my outdoor wood burner project.
If my videos help you and you decide to make your own, please consider using these links to buy stuff you'll likely need (or just use them for Amazon shopping and help me out.. I get a small percent of your sales and it doesn't cost you anything)
AC/DC Arc Welder: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000... - I recommend an arc welder with DC (much smoother) over mig/tig due to cost and also, from what I've heard, when using mig outdoors your gas can get blown away and screw things up. Stick welding is pretty rugged.
6011 Welding Rods: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000... - I started my first project using 6013 welding rods. BIG MISTAKE! The 6013 is a shallow penetrating welding rod. Better for sheet metal from what I've been told. I've used 10 lbs of rod at the point shown in this project (plus about 4 rods from my second box). 15 lbs will do the project, but I'd recommend getting at least 20 lbs so you can have some to practice with. (And if you haven't/don't weld, practice alot. I learned you can never practice too much!)
Welding Gloves: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001... - I'm on my second pair. Mostly because I keep my hands to close to the arc. If it's wet or hot out (and you're sweating) I recommend changing gloves often as they get wet. A wet glove can cause you to get shocked (shocking I know).
