Whats wrong with it? Only a grounding strip is needed. My table at work is wood (doesn't scratch material).

Only that it's combustible, I am sure you don't get a plasma or a cutting torch close to the tig wood table at work.
It's one of them...It works for you but not for me kind of thing.

I try not to use a cutting torch indoors at all. Wood table or not. When I use a plasma cutter, I use horses. If it's sheet metal I use a straight edge and hang it off the table. It works fine haha, just not for everyone I guess.....

My buddie's wood table caught fire just last week. Luckily he had gatorade sitting around to splash on it. Pretty funny actually. Just not a good idea. Go to any welding supply store and ask if they sell wooden welding tables. Just sayin....but to each his own.

This isn't a thread about welding tables, it's about nice welds and showing them off.

You're all right, wooden tables are a terrible idea, now shut it. I'm guilty too.... Now either pictures of your welds or stay quiet otherwise I'll just delete the thread and forget about it.

Thanks, - Ken

Steering box skid I recently built.....on a steel table
The last pict is of my dash speakers, the only reason I show them is because I used my plasma to reuse part of the OEM speaker frames and just to let ya know speakers burn real quick when ya hit em with the plasma.

I am guilty of a wooden to table too(plywood) only because years ago it was all i had to build a few things,but it's outside where if it caught fire it'd just burn up and and not hurt anything but itself.

Soon gettin a truck load of old 5/8" plate from a job where it was replaced with bigger.

Not to get far off subject,,but i have to ask,,why only use a torch outside?
