That can be a really good solution. DIYers can be their own worst enemies, at times, by failing to turn over parts of the project to others.

I generally don't weld stuff together that goes to a customer -- I just don't seem to have the level of skill anymore. Good enough for my own stuff. I find it a little hard to to turn welding over to an artiste, but admire the results.

The POC has a mix -- all the steel done by me, all the aluminum done by an artiste. Occasionally, someone will say "Wow, did you do all the welding?" and I have to fess up: "Yep, all the ones that look like wads of bubble gum. I hired out all the good-looking ones."
