...from the welding fool... Next is a bigger garage, or we're in trouble!

WOW! That stuff is beautiful. I am going to have to learn to do that. There is only so much you can do screwing together plumbing pipe which is the unfortunate limit of my metal handling skills. People pay big money for that stuff...I see a business brewing here. Well done.

Looking good!

Is that carpet glued to the plyo boxes?
If so, what did you use for adhesive?

Beautiful stuff, it makes want to get started learning to weld.

Where I work they have a fully-stocked machine shop and fabrication facility that I walk past every day drooling at the capabilities and possibilities of what I could make in that place.

The material glued to the plyo boxes is recycled rubber flooring. We bought a remnant from a local flooring store, cut it to size, and glued it down with liquid nails. I'm not sure the liquid nails is going to be tough enough to hold it down over time, so we may end up throwing a couple of screws into it. After 2 different incidences of me completely shaving my skin off my shins on the edge of the plywood, it was time to put some nice thick rubber on there!

The welding is the easy part, it is the cutting and fitting all the pieces that is hard.

That stuff looks great!
