DIY Welding Projects for Fun at Home

Have you heard? There is a shortage of home baking supplies available online these days, due to an epidemic of home cooking that has swept the nation during the COVID pandemic. With social distance keeping many of us from our favorite eateries this spring, we welders are in a unique position to get down to DIY-ing a little domestic progress in the kitchen. DIY welding is a favorite topic for our blog at Sidney Lee Welding Supply Co in Atlanta, GA. As we spend more time at home, doing it ourselves has become a necessity, in addition to being a fun and rewarding hobby.


Now is the time to take stock of all that extra metal, scrap, and various welding supplies you have lying around the DIY shed. Looking over all the pieces, can you see a deep-dish for future pizzas, a dutch oven for baked bread, or a griddle for all those eggs you plan to buy from your neighborhood hens? With a little creativity and welding skill, we know you can make these into welded reality. They say to make peace through beating our swords into ploughshares, and in times like these, we have to rise to the occasion by borrowing the metaphor from our forefathers the blacksmiths, and start joining the metal we have to create the projects we need.

Or maybe even use this time to get back to a hobby within the wide field of welding – if you have the welding equipment, why not fire up a forge and (with the proper safety equipment – available from Sidney Lee Welding Supply Co in Atlanta, GA!) clang those spears into cutlery and smelt your scraps into frying pans. It could relieve some tension and be practical at the same time. Whatever you choose to work on, we hope you have the welding supplies you need to keep your do-it-yourself welding skills up to snuff. If you need any welding equipment in Atlanta, Sidney Lee has you covered – we remain open for business in Hampton, Conyers, Macon, Douglasville, and Atlanta, GA!
