I welded my couch.

One of the hinge rivets on the recliner side I use most lost a head. It looked to be about the size of a 1/4" washer, so ... now it looks exactly like a 1/4" washer with a sloppy MIG bead in the hole.

Embrace your inner redneck. And tell us about it.

Why yes, yes you are.

Whatever it takes to get the job done.

Of course you would be even more redneck if you has set it on fire while welding.

I was in my brothers wedding. We wore string ties, black engineer boots and cowboy hats (outside; were not heathens). That was in PA.

When I read "I welded my couch," I figured the story would go something like "So a fifth of Evan later, we decided it was way too cold to go downstairs, so we brought the welder upstairs. That's when a bit of slag hit the couch and...."

I see people in Indiana say they're redneck and laugh. Heck I've seen people from Kentucky say they're redneck and I've laughed.

I once had a mullet. I destroyed all the photographic evidence I know about.

Your brother has style.

I had a weenie roast over a creosote infused telephone pole fire. It was what we had. I'm pretty sure the 30 pack of Busch saved me and my buddies. We were camping out in an abandoned industrial park.

This was years ago, and apparently I'm lucky to be alive.

I fixed my 5 year-old Ikea couch with scrap wood three years ago. Still going strong.

I fixed the door of my old pickup with a rubberband.

I should probably stop before I think of too many of these.

My bed frame's middle support experienced extreme failure. I stick welded it together in the garage and added some angle iron as a support. Now I can jump on the bed all I want and that berkeleyer doesn't move!

If that thing's got a fifth wheel in the bed, your towing problems are over. Unless..

1.) It's gas instead of diesel, and

2.) You haven't got a fifth wheel trailer.

EDIT: When we moved, I had a dead Chinese clothes dryer in the back yard. Gave it to the neighborhood kids to haul off for scrap. Does that count?

I gave the sub-contracter the scissors jack from my Stingray to jack the floor up to level before putting down tile. In there permanently!

The brake lights on my Civic came on by themselves. Apparently, the is a little rubber bumper on the pedal that holds.the switch in the off position until you apply the brakes. Mine crumbled from old age. I replaced it with 2 pennies and super glue. That was 2 years who and it still works just fine.

My old bed was held up with a full on hydraulic jack in the corner for a night or too.

My current bed has multiple fixes on it consisting of 2x4, and yes breakage occurred during adult time.
