Default The cube

In my tig class one of the things we have to turn in is a flat pad, my teacher told me that one of the students last year made a cube and she suggested I try the same thing. So after about 4 or 5 hours of welding I came up with this, its about 3" wide and I padded all six sides.

Sorry I dont have a better picture thats the best I could get, I might try alittle later to get a better one.

Is this better? At least I can see it.
But this is not to discourage you from getting a better shot of it, Don.

Well that's more like it! Now I can see the cube! Good job on the beads.

Cutter how do you do that amaz'in stuff? If I try that it just lightens the whole photo beyond visual comprehension!

Nice job Don. Is that what they mean by thinking out if the box?
