You’ve likely heard it takes 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. Well, I know this welder guy who put his 10,000 hours in like 40 years ago… and he’s still welding. So if you’re a master after 10,000, what are you after 100,000?
Ya see, I often come up with crazy projects that are a little out of my reach. This bench being the latest example. While I have some crude woodworking skills, my only welding skill is knowing who to call for help. So I called this guy, sent some sketches, measurements and so on… a few weeks later I had my frame. Welded in a little garage, with poor equipment by a guy with 100,000 hours of experience. The result is simply stunning.
When it comes to metal, my dad is simply genius.
