    Sure wish I had the capabilities to do welding here! So, so many projects that can be done with that. I love the way you designed that rack, Joel....room underneath for shoes, an ash bucket, a cat bed, etc.

    I love things designed for ergonomics and that rack seems to be just that...high enough off the ground for good access without breaking your back and high enough for dual storage. Excellent design! :woot

    I wonder if there are opportunities for you near home? I can think of a couple situations I've seen here & there... Night school or weekend courses (and access to equipment via schools). Shared-use facilities open to the public, often involving a membership of some sort - such as what is called a "maker's space". You need instruction for the safety & the how-to at first... then it's just a matter of practice & your skills improve. You can pick up many tips & refinements via Youtube.

    There's no doubt that women can learn to be good welders. They did it as a job in the factories & shipyards during WW2. And many women now are learning through ag-mechanics courses, or art-school classes, etc. You wouldn't need to own the equipment necessarily. A lot of people develop a relationship with a school & afterwards can get access to the equipment at times.
