Since taking up frame building I have been an admirer of the perfect weld joints some of the Pros around here can produce. That concentric stack of dimes look that Carl, Drew, Tony, etc, seem to produce look machine made at times (and that is a complement).
My welds, however seem to flow more smoothly, and tend to resemble a small filet when painted. So the question is, I'm I doing it wrong? Is the "stack of dimes" purley assetically pleasing, and add no structuall value? Is one preferable over the other?
An example of my finish work.
Thanks in advance.
