    Did I miss something? You've been building a pretty awesome table with no build thread?

    It's taken so long, people would have lost interest long ago.

    Do you have a top for it?
    Just a couple welders, big hammers, grinders, and torches.

    Main leg and cross support is quarter inch wall 3 inch square tubing.

    very nice! Can't wait to see it all done and together!

    I need to think about a real welding table one of these years.
    12v battery, jumper cables, and a 6013.

    Pretty awesome Robert!

    But I think you built it backwards - the process normally goes like this:
    1. Build a table that has no features
    2. Cut a hole to add something you wish you added to begin with.
    3. Use it a couple years wanting another added feature.
    4. Return to step 2.
    5. Use it a couple years......
    6. Step 2.
    7. Repeate cycle until the table looks nothing like what you started with but now works great

    Haha! I think I've worn out 3 of those t-shirts and my 4th is starting to get faded...and I think my dryer is shrinking it (but that's a separate topic)

    Keep up the excellent work

    You forgot the onboard sound system
    I gave powder coating some serious thought, but I can easily redo the paint when I burn it or scratch it.

    Sound system? ? Doh!

    Maybe next time?

    Re: Welding table ready for paint

    Since your top will be slats you may want to think about putting a thin piece of stainless or something on top of the tool boxes to keep them from getting burned then rusting. The table frame will be fine because of the material thickness butt those boxes are thin sheet metal.

    How long did it take? That's an impressive table. I usually do the Minnesota Dave way. I've probably built 3 or 4 table monstrosities. For my next table I'll have to put more thought and planning into it.

    That's a trick question.

    From start to finish (well... it's technically, it's not done yet) had taken about a year from initial wtf am I thinking to paint. I still need to finish the paint and drill a bazillian holes in the top.

    But I've been using a table like Dave's for to long. Apologies to Dave.

    It's about time you finally threw this build into its own thread!! .

    Looking good, can't wait to see the whole thing put together.
