Been thinking about making a welding table. My sister was cleaning out a house and found 38 ft of 2.5" square tubing 3/16 thick, 16 ft of 2" square tubing. Was going to make a table 4ft x 3ft welding table here is a photo of the base design I was going to use, want to also add a shelve so I can store metal. My question is the top. Debating between a solid top over 1/2 thick or a Modular top with holes, 6 steel flat bars 6" wide by 3' long around 5/8" thick with holes every 2" I have a friend that could grind the top of the bars flat. I would drill the holes with a Magnetic drill (anyone have one?) using the template system I used on my wood cart.

I have never used a modular welding table, what do you think of them, has anyone used one.

I like the Strong Hand table but it's a little more then I want to spend.

What are you using as a welding table?

Those Strong Hand tables are really nice. The welding lab at Schoolcraft must have about 16' of that running down the middle of the shop.
