Your host, Steve Darnell, is the owner of Welder Up located in Las Vegas, NV.

These talents, along with an awesome crew, create the wild rides Welder Up has become famous for. Steve’s creativity doesn’t stop there. He has also produced short films, music videos, and creative man-interior designs. and those experiences have formed the basis for “Vegas Rat Rods” as seen on the Discovery Channel. 

Welder 101 was created to answer the many questions I receive daily about welding and fabrication skills. My goal with building this video library is to show you all of the tips and tricks I have learned over my 30+ years of welding and fabrication.
