Talking Whats the best thing you've ever made? Any pics?

As a newbie on here, Ive found it really interesting and addictive reading the posts on here over the last few days. It seems like most of you have a lot of knowledge and experience in welding and fabricating. Some of you have mentioned home projects etc and you obviously all enjoy welding/metalwork to be here discussing it on a forum.

I was just wondering what sort of things any of you have made/renovated that you are most proud of, or enjoyed making the most? Im guessing there will be quite a wide range here! Any of you got pictures to share too? *

Sorry but my most exciting, as a beginner, would be a few girders for a tesco building and honda showroom (before I left my job that is), no exciting home projects or anything. Would be nice to see/hear about some of yours though and would also help me to picture you guys a bit better in my feeble little brain :-D

* Just found out you cant post pictures on here. hmm Exciting!

thanks for the info about pics twelvepole. Ill remember that for future reference.

Nice gantry lbrty9. Looks pretty smart. Your friend must have been pretty happy with it. Did you spray paint it or get it powder coated?

I gave it to him unfinished and let him decide how to protect it.

I made a child (at least I helped). I'm pretty proud of that.

Hubby did about 95% of the work on this construction piece, I helped. It started as a 2-car garage with workshop:
