    Built a welding table this past week

    3/8" Plate top

    1 3/4" pipe legs

    1 5/8" Cross bars

    2" reciever style mounts for tools/vises at every corner

    I used the pipe for legs and cross bars so I could do some notching and welding prior to converting my 6 point cage to 12 point.

    Well done!

    Looks nice and sturdy with good penetration.

    I think I might have made the vertical receivers flush with the table top. They might get in the way. You can always cut em off if that's the case.

    Yes it is, probably 200+ pounds but it slides around quite easily

    I thought about that and decided to have them up 1/2", no real reason behind it.

    Not sure how level/flat your floor is, but you can use some 1/2" or 5/8" dia nuts tack welded over a hole in some flat bar, weld them to the bottoms of your legs, then thread in some bolts to use as levelers. If the heads of the bolts are digging in to the floor, then tack some flat bar to the heads of the bolts for the feet.

    Good idea!!

    Trying to get it to not have a little wiggle to it is impossible as the floor changes a little around the shop.
