Metal art is my newest hobby

Well like many metal enthusiasts before me, I am new to metal art and new to this site. My initial plan was to get into plasma cutting using a CNC table, but all my hard research is making my head spin. so I think I'm going to stick to freeform plasma cutting. I actually feel a bit better about that and think that I can be more creative (although don't get me wrong, when I see the lovely signs, gates, and other images that are done on a cnc table I still would love to have one, it's just that the cost isn't for me at this time.)
I just completed a backyard welding course from one of our local lifetime welders. I used the acetelyne torces and the stick welder for the very first time and wasn't overwhelmed. I only stuck the welding rod to the metal the first time and never did it again! so I'm ready to start practicing and creating any time now. I haven't bought my plasma cutter yet as that's a larger purchase and hopefully I'll have that in the next few weeks. I have a page written down of creative ideas that I'm just dieing to start on. I'll post some pictures whenever I get going.
So please keep posting all your great work as this helps to inspire me further.
Very best regards from Metal Momma from the great Ottawa Valley, Ontario Canada.
