    If I had gold plated toilet seats I would complain that they were cold. That’s what Americans do. It isn’t new.

    I am not in Chiiiiinnnnnna. I am in USA and don't give a rats *** about Chiiiiinnnaaa. I am making a suggestion to where you would put your foot/feet to control your foot pedal and not complaining.

    Simply remove the lower crossbars in one opening. That is where you would put your chair and foot pedal. Not sure what the big deal is here people. I don't give a hang how your build your welding table but I am sure it will be figured out real quick if you are tigging and fighting with the chair, crossbar and foot pedal.

    Why not make a drop on top to cover your slats and take it off when you need the slats. I have also considered slats like your design with holes. I would make it so I could sit down and weld on it too if it were mine.

    My table top is 7 feet long and 3 ft wide and weighs almost 500 lbs. and is all open in the front. Built it in 2003.

    Re: Welding Table Design

    I do most of my TIG welding sitting down.
    I actually made a different table specifically for sit down TIG welding. Its much lower and smaller than my other welding table

    Re: Welding Table Design

    When shopping for your top , check for drops or cutoffs. You may find that odd dimensional pieces maybe less money. Instead of a 36'' x 60'' you may find a 38'' x 64'' or something .

    Here's a table I made with a member when she was just learning.You may see some ideas you like.

    Don’t be particular about the the size of the top. You won’t be able to cut it with a saw to fit and if you use a torch it will warp. Custom cut tops drive up the price. I just bought a 48x48 x1/2” stock plate and it was nice and flat and square. Some people round the corners but I like using the edges for straight edges and the corners for right angles.
