Fixed Pedestal and Dice - Lesson 1 of 4


Students will interpret drawings/prints to Identify components and information to plan for the next phase of the Fixed Pedestal and Dice Project.


The following activities tie in to a project based lesson for Welding and Material Joining.

Items covered in this portion will be: sketching, material identification, drawing and print interpretation.

For this portion of the project students should have a basic understanding of print/drawing interpretation.


  • For this project, .250" material thickness is typical.
  • Material thicknesses and dimensions can vary depending on instructor and material availability. Most of the resources in this project will not reflect material thickness.

Instructor Note:

  • As welding goes, learning is often at an independent pace and often times the American Welding Society modular format is utilized. Overview found here:
  • It is suggested to use a hybrid of the American Welding Society modular format and small groups of 2-4 students engaging in this project at any one time, planning in advanced a schedule given the time elements for this project and the ability of your students.
