Welding Students Practice Their Craft While Getting Into Holiday Spirit

Big picture
In November, students in the Welding I and II classes had the opportunity to put their newly acquired welding skills to the test while spreading some holiday cheer at Taylor Career and Technical Center.


Under the guidance of interim welding instructor Eula Grooms and program technician Joseph Horth, students created a Christmas Tree made entirely from recycled metals.


Take a look!

Every welding student took part in the creation of the tree

This recycled Christmas tree is made of scrap metal from materials used to train students in our Welding lab

The overall height of the tree is 75 inches and it measures 40 inches at the base; the approximate weight is 500 pounds

We used the CNC plasma cutter to cut the base and the star at the top

Wire frame welded presents are included under the tree

It took two weeks to make the tree using newly acquired welding skills
