Why not weld back in a 3 1/2" plug ?

thats a 3 1/2 foot hole. cut the piece into four at the thin spots 3,6,9 and 12 Oclock, rotate each piece 180 and weld what were the outside edges together.

Seems like a lot of trouble though to make the piece you need.

What are you using it for? It will be hard too keep flat.

Hi,
New guy here, post #3. I made a diagram to timberwolf's description to look at the leftover after the square is taken out. It looks like with some cutting could make 4 legs and most all the scrap could live as a low table :)

You could also take the 4 plate sections and make a material rack out of them

Alternate welds on alternate sides, and backstep the welds. Ought to stay pretty flat.
