Just picked up the metal for the top of my welding table. The top will be 3ft x 3ft x 1/2 thick and 3ft height also have a shelve 1/4 thick. The frame will be 2.5" square tubing 3/16 thick. I'm making it small so I could move it around the shop easy and outside for grinding. Did a mock up out of wood for height and size.

Was debating about over hang for the top plate was thinking 3" is there any advantage of leaving one side flush with the legs?

Was also going to add a pull out for support long stock and a trailer hitch mount that I can slide a vise, grinders etc..

Anything else you would add to welding table to make it better?

Drawer for chipping hammer, brushes, gloves, etc. Hook for your hood. Small flat bar / bolt for calming ground.

Ground clamp is a good idea. Not sure if I'm going to store welder under table yet.

Making some progress about 85% done. Made a cutting torch track and used it to cut the bottom 1/4 plate the track worked great got a nice clean cut.
Hope to finish by the end of next month.
