Yes, very nice welds.  Wire or stick or TIG ?

Come on... Surely there's a difference between stick welding where I live and where you live!  

That looks like TIG welding over here.

A talented stick welder can make those even beads (sometimes called "a row of nickels") and they end up looking like TIG beads.  The professional welder that did the crossmember in my 47 Ford hotrod used stick and they came out nice and even like that.  So hats off to your welder.

So then your welds look similar to mine. I get a bit better after each big project.
About the time I can't weld anymore I should be a decent welder.
