MIG: Tables and Stands

This intensive workshop focuses on MIG (wirefeed) welding and stresses the basic skills needed for fabrication in steel including safety, welding technique, welder set-up, and layout. After two hours of intro and practice, move into fabricating a small steel stand for a 1′ top (not included, but we recommend a standard flooring tile or even a scrap of wood!) focusing on layout and functional metal fabrication.

ADX provides metal stock, all tools, equipment, materials, consumables and safety gear.

Kari Merkl is the owner of Merkled Studio, a Portland-based design studio focusing on creating custom furniture, fixtures and small-run products for both residential and commercial spaces.  Kari has been designing and creating objects of function for the past 15 years.  Her work reflects an appreciation for materials, mechanics, and craft.  Kari has been teaching welding for both MIG and TIG for the past 5 years in both Portland and Chicago and passionately enjoys getting people excited about the possibilities in metal.

While not required, we strongly encourage attending Intro to Metal Shop before this workshop.

Classes are limited to 4 students to ensure lots of hands-on time with the tools and personal attention from the instructor. If the class is sold out but you’re still interested in this particular class, we can add your name to a waitlist and will contact you if a ticket becomes available. Email for more information.
