I work out of a small 400 sq ft garage and space is also VERY limited; my welding table is built from 1.5" x 1.5" .125 wall square stock, with a 48" x 54" 1/4" plate top. Ive got 4 heavy duty casters on it so I can roll it around the shop and out into the gravel driveway.
This is not a "heavy duty table" by any means, but I do use it bust apart and rebuild LARGE hydraulic cylinders ( large pipe vise at the end of the table, regular vise at other end), also put large pieces of THICK plate on it for repairs and fab, havent had any problem with the plate deflecting or bending. The only problem I really have is when im busting caps off of cylinders... when youve got a 36" pipe wrench and a 8' cheater bar on it, the table likes to pop up in the back, just have to have a buddy sit on the table.
