Welcome to the DWAP Welded Metal Art website. I’ve recently revised this site with the intent of collaborating with others in a discussion forum that focuses on welded metal art. The topic of discussion will be presented in the site’s blog and include input in the form of comments (discussion forum). Photo-evidence of the efforts to implement the recommended or suggested methods will be progressively included in the related posts. The site will continue to contain the accumulation of the ‘rat rod’ style welded metal art projects that were made in my garage/welding shop at my home which started in the Cincinnati, Ohio area, but has moved – a few times – and currently resides in South Carolina. Sometimes it’s not just about the project but about the journey. The initial part of my journey involved making a website. The secondary part of the journey involved evaluating the initial part of the journey … and a necessary revision of the intention of the site. If there is a question about the website name – I could respond “… why not?” However, the real reason probably best falls along the lines of: 1) I didn’t know what to name it or the direction to take with it when I first started the site, and 2) all the really cool names were already taken. In any case, I had fun (for the most part) making the items posted on this site. Enjoy!
