I require that my students spend time welding and creating a weld pad to create muscle memory needed for welding. Most like this, but some do not. Students want to build something they can take home. I recently spoke with a friend who is a welding inspector and he gave me the idea for students to create a weld pad, but then turn it into a cabin. The welds look like logs, and once they have welded the entire cabin together, they can fill it with water and place it on a wood burning stove and have steam (smoke) come out of the chimney or turn it into a bank. The students are able to get practice welding, while still building a project that they can take home.
