    Re: How would you weld this?

    each leg is two 3/8 rods that form a v and there are 4 legs thus 8 rods. each leg holds up to 125 lbs under compression so I don't see where that is too much weight.

    Just my understanding. I don't see it as spam. I see spam as the likes of sellers or people trying to move traffic to other websites for monetary gain.

    That's correct..

    Or a TROLL.

    Lets see.. 3 posts and no response...
    It's a "Pick'em"...

    Not spam, just an overly optimistic woodworker.

    I got some reasonable quotes from a local san francisco shop, and decided for now I'm just going to purchase the legs. I figured if I only had one type of weld to learn, I could figure it out on my own... but I realized welding is a world of its own. I'll learn eventually.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Here are the tables I'm hoping to build:

    Cool... and welcome.

    Stainless is a tough starting point as it's harder to bend, cut, and drill. Add to that the material cost make mistakes painful. I wouldn't let our exercise in reality discourage you from adding some metal fab to your craft.

    Before heading off to buy some equipment I'd recommend taking some basic classes to get your feet wet and gain some skills to get you where you'd like to be. I'd use your project for the class and glean all you can. There are several ways to complete this job... it all comes down to your skills and equipment. You may find your new passion... or you may decide you hate welding and your happier subbing it out.

    I grew up in a wood shop... but was introduced to metal shop in junior high. I think my Dad's ok with it.

    I would agree they look good.
    Welding is a world of it own. That does not mean you cannot learn though.
    Either taking a class and staying on here, or even just buying a welder and start playing around with some stuff.

    A wood worker cum welder.....now I've heard it all.

    It is little wonder the USA has lost most of it's ability to produce trade goods against the Chinese "back yarders"......I weep.

    In this situation the wood worker is taking the bread out of the mouth of a person who relies on welding for a living and can guarantee his work.

    If the table leg fails at the weld and the customer ends up with hot soup amongst the family jewels.....expect some expensive court time due to also attempting to be a lawyer.....LOL.

    HOLY FIREWOOD, BATMAN!

    I burned a couple of chords of walnut this past winter, cause around here stuff like that is scrap wood. Unless a log is long and straight (veneer tree) nobody wants to buy it anymore.

    Nice looking tables there Danny!

    Re: How would you weld this?

    bittiker, I like your tables and the fact that you are using material that would otherwise be discarded to make functional and good looking things. If you are in an area where you can sell your products for enough to make a business out of it, all the better.

    Most of us have a personality trait that causes us to enjoy making things, and learning new skills. You came and asked a reasonable question. You got some good advice on that question, and if you find that welding is a skill that would take you further down the road to where you want to go, I'm sure you'll do well with some practice and focus. Good luck!

    In my area every single person that would want a table like that would make their own. Pretty tough to do something that makes money around here. You have to be good at something that is very hard to do around these parts and then still no one has money. lol

    It's crazy on these threads how a simple welding question can get such intense reactions out of people. Thanks everyone for your input, I've got my hands full marketing now, but I'll have more questions once I get back in the shop - Danny

    Jman, when this thread was started and the OP was asking questions some things just didn't seem "right" to me. He even said he was an amateur, asking about what kind of welder to use and things like that. Often when people on here "ask" questions they don't even pay attention to the replys and do whatever it is they wanted to do anyway. (asking about welding on a trailer..Everyone says don't do it..They do it anyway)
