Cigar Ashtray...

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.

The making of Cigar Ashtray showed in the pictures is very interesting. You prepared easily with easily available tools. Visit assignment writing service for how to make Cigar Ashtrays. Since I am chain smoker this is good news for me. Today I am going to prepare Ashtray for myself.

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
