Home-Built Welding Table
"The 2-piece table measures about 2 ft. wide by 3 ft. long. I built it because I didn't want to give up floor space to a dedicated welding table. The top part of the table is separate from the front and is formed by an angle iron frame and expanded metal. The front part is made from 1-in. sq. tubing, with a length of flat steel serving as a brace at the bottom. The brace is what the front rides on during transport.
"I wrapped and welded a piece of 1-in. flat stock around the dolly to support the hinge, which consists of a length of tubing with a rod going through it. By removing a cotter pin at each end of the rod I can remove the dolly and use it as an ordinary 2-wheeled cart.
"A simple bungee cord holds the entire unit together for storage."
