Something cool I have been working on for the garage.....a metal work table.
I had some steel that needed a project, and a need for a solid mobile table to cut/weld metal, so here we go. My wife does not approve of me 'making sparks' in the garage, so I need to be able to wheel this out to the driveway when she is home...haha.
I still need to add some more material for grinder holders, clamp holder, cord holder, etc., but the basic idea is there.
The top and bottom shelf are only 3/16" because I had a full 4x6 sheet with nothing else to do with. I say "only" because I would've preferred a 1/4" top, but couldn't see the need to buy a new piece of steel when I think what I have will fit my needs fine. The legs and frame underneath the top and shelf are 2x2x1/4" angle.
The bottom of the table top and shelf are fully ribbed with 1/4" angle.
There is a torch holder on the left side just under the table top. On the right, there is a heavy wall pipe for a receiver. I have the vice on one mount and a bench grinder on another mount. The idea is to be able to drop them on the shelf below when not in use for unobstructed use of the table top. A square receiver would've been easier, but the tube was on hand.
The idea is for the little Lincoln welder to sit on the lower shelf. I want to add a base off to the side down by the welding machine for a small gas bottle.
