Default TIG projects

Anybody have stories of projects they had to do when learning TIG welding,
or other exercises to try when learning it?

I had no problems with 14 and maybe even some 16 guage carbon steel, but
struggled with anything thicker (1/8" and up) and keeping up the fill rod
rate or not changing angles of the torch as I moved along a weld.
Obviously I need to practice that with a spotter again. I really had no
idea what was going on for some reason.

Just keep practicing. I've been TIG'n for 20 years and I'm still
learning.

Watch Jody's videos. I learned a couple of things just yesterday
doing that.
