    There's no greater feeling of accomplishment than translating the idea in your head into a real fabricated part....

    The first project or two will always look a little "rough", but each time you learn a few more tricks, and improve your skills. Next thing you know, you start feeling like you can make stuff just a nice as what you see advertised.


    Congrats! :thumb:
