my garden remodled

14 comments


I have been making an extension on my concrete fence which I wrote a blog about . while I had the gate off and the corner of my room propped up I got to thinking that while its down I could make it better and learn something . I bought a little stick welder and after a bit of practise I kind of got the hang of it . I cut the top off of my old gate and ground it down smooth and welded the top back on just above the gate . I alse used some of the parts to make the arch over the gate . I was just going to make the wall but ive added to it . I hope you like it . take care by for now .

Brilliant ! I used to be a welder until I hurt my eyes.
Quite enjoyed doing it.
Always use protective goggles, they are much better now.

cool thanks diane ive never been a welder so I went threw a couple of days just getting the stick welded to what I was trying to weld and a few burns . I was well pleased reusing my old gate that I paid £10 for about 15 years ago second hand .

Gosh Leigh, is there anything you can't turn your hand to? Your gate is amazing. There's a different view down the garden from what I've seen before - no idea the concrete fence was as long as that. It looks fantastic and so unusual. Wish i could get to your open day - hope it all goes really well.

well done, this is brilliant. I learnt to weld when I was a teenager. My brother was a welder too and I well remember the flash and the state of his eyes afterwards. UV burns to the cornea. But he soon learnt to use a mask/goggles. They came in useful to look at the last eclipse.
