a butt weld with back is the easiest way but also the least quality of methods. Sounds like he wants to learn so I'd suggest he practice his open butt welds starting with small squares for rust or whatever. Then he can hone into his skills and then do it on bigger stuff if he chooses. For now, I'd suggest a flanger. It's a lot of work though to flange but worth it.
