I'm impressed that you're a new welder & at least from here it looks pretty decent but I have no experience welding, which leads me to this. Even at my senoir citizen age I am seroiusly considering starting some welding. Maybe you could post a few lines on what equipment you're using & what you may have practiced on. I recently made a simple but highly engineered tail pipe bracket that looks like an engineering feat that must have taken me 12 hours to fabricate. A welder could have done the job in 5 minutes.
