Cigar Ashtray...

by Don
(Belleville, Michigan, USA)

I took a welding and fabrication course at my local community college. For the final project, we had to think of something to make for ourselves. I couldn't really think of what I wanted, so I thought I would make something for someone else. I would visit my brother in law in New York City, and he would always offer me a cigar after dinner. After we would enjoy our cigars, he just tossed the butts onto his metal awning outside his porch. So I decided I would make him something to put his cigar butts in.

For the project, I chose to make the box out of 14 ga mild steel. I use oxy-acetylene for all my welds except the plug weld I did for my cut tubes I used for cigar holders. The box warped slightly due to all the heat, but it seems that I am the only one who notices it. lol If someone else chooses to do this project, I would suggest tig welding it and reconfiguring the cigar holder layout. It was my first personal project with welding, so I hope you guys are not too harsh about my welds. LOL thanks I hope you like it.

This is great news that you have fabrication course at my local community college. I think the action or process of manufacturing or inventing something. For example, we have had a large stock of Pakistani girls dresses at discount rate.

Awesome idea and work NEW
by: RocketSurgeon

That is a brilliant cigar ashtray! I smoke cigars myself and love being outside when I smoke. Your design is perfect for outdoor/patio smoking. The cut pipe for the cigars is spot on as well. I love the fact you integrated the holder plate with a pit opening for the ashes into the box.

Awesome work. I may make one just like it myself from stainless.

Thanks NEW
by: Rake

Wow.. This is amazing. You do have some excellent talent in both welding and creative side. I bet such an ashtray would cost more than a hundred dollars in the market. And if some artwork is done on to, it would be a cool piece. Medical Billing
