Does anyone have websites that they recommend that might have small around the house welding projects? Could be functional or simply ornamental. I am looking for some projects to do so I can practice welding since my experience is minimal. I want to learn more before I weld something that requires a level of structural quality to be safe.
Thanks for ideas

Here are few projects I've done in the past. Maybe one or two will be of interest to you.;)

Just do something with what you have available. Even something simple like making a rack to hold your garden tools, a coat hook, hose holder, mailbox, yard art, something with horseshoes/nuts/bolts/washers/etc..... Just get creative.

You might want to look at youtube. Search on simple welding projects or some similar search phrase.

Here is a easy project to build. And handy as a pocket on a shirt. Will work on the front end loader, or the 3-point hitch.

That is what I do, and usually there is something broken around the house for me to fix.!
Since I have learned how to TIG (more or less :)) that has really opened up the amount of household things to fix.

Everybody can use a lumber rack for their pickup. This one was built with material out of my scrap pile. Just had to buy the paint.
