Soldering Success

Do you know how to solder? I spent the better part of this week learning how. I thought it was a simple process...NooooOOOOoooo. My husband has the equipment from his electrical engineering days, so I thought, let's just grab the stuff and solder. But, I don't want to solder electrical wires, and it turns out, you need different soldering things for this. Like flux. Ah, the world of flux. And, little factoid for you all, did you know that if you're soldering aluminum you need aluminum flux? Neither did I. So, after a week's worth of frustration and research, I have successfully soldered!!!! Cue the confetti!

So, why all the fuss about soldering? I'm trying to make mini Eiffel base chairs. Yes, that is correct. Why, you ask? I'll leave you in suspense on that one. So, first part done. Next part, learning how to sculpt the fiberglass seats. That should take about a month.
