In college, I built a CD tower out of rebar (Click on the above photos to view larger images). Apparently, I’m not that great of a welder, cuz the joints broke after moving out of my parents and into my place 3 years later. So wrapping this heavy twine around the joints was meant to keep it together. It was always in my mind that it looked good, but just now upon closer inspection, the twine is quite messy. 🙂
Anyhow, the point of this post is to illustrate that I would like to take a welding class in Chicago. Does anybody know of some good places? The Evanston Art Center offers some welding classes, but that’s a bit far away. Someone suggested some union or trade school, but where are they?
