Sitting here thinking on what i can get to renovate to make a table that will NOT burn down the house.

I was thinking maybe a weight bench, or even a couple of bike frames..

Do you have any exotic or psychotic styled welding table ??

Here is my home made portable welding table

Actually its just a pallet made out of 2x4's and 4x4's that I can get any height I want with. HAHA.


I welded on top of that pallet for about a week straight without any problems though. Even did some thick stuff

This was a frame made out of 3x.25" sqr tubing.


Depending on what you plan on building on said welding table, you can make it out of 4x4's and 2x4's and put plywood on top and then just throw some steel plate on the top of it when you are welding. Otherwise for a modest welding table use 1" or 1.25" sqr tubing and put a piece of 3/16" plate on the top.

I have seen welding tables made from everything from 1" sqr tubing to 2" pipe to 6" I beams, and tops from plywood with steel on top to 1/2" steel plate depending on how much fabricating the person actually did. You can go as cheap or as fancy as your budget allows really.

Here are my work tables, the first one is sized for mostly bike stuff. The second was an old homemade bike building table I chopped up and made a portable fab table out of. I will eventually add another shelf underneath with some expanded metal to strengthen it up and have a place to put all the stuff that collects on the work surface. Smile

Since all I have is a home garage with limited room I built a an average sized all steel table with 1/4" top plate, etc. No casters at this point.

For quick, temporary, portable tables, I have used the fold up steel sawhorses you can get at Home Depot and place a piece of 3/16" across them. Works great.

For smaller projects I just bought a Strong Hand Nomad fold up portable. Will be trying it out this week.

This table is so far away to pickup that I might have to get a giveaway grill and use the frame and put a top on it..

4' x 10' x 3/4" thick plate on a 4" channel iron frame with steel legs. I've never warped it. Shocked
