My good friend Ken needed an outdoor cutting table to go right next to his BBQ/Grill, and he wanted to use the same design elements as we had on his outdoor end tables. I got all the materials yesterday, and was able to get it ready for powder coating today. Here are the pictures!
Cutting some squares to cap the legs. It’s easy to grind them in the web, and break them out as I use them.
All the materials are cut and ready for the next step.
Power tapping the leveler blocks for the legs.
Tack welding the leveler block into the bottom of the legs.
After finish welding and grinding.
Setup to weld the interior frames together.
Setup tp weld the legs to the top frame with a 1″ offset. My welding table makes it easy and consistent.
A closeup of the welds.
Welding the interior bottom frame in place.
Every weld bead is sitting under the frame, so it is not visible when the table is in the upright position.
After measuring the exact dimensions for the exterior frames, I cut and welded these pieces together. First exterior frame welded in place.
Second one done! I love my height adjustable welding table extensions.
The table base is complete!

And another one!
The base sitting on my shop floor.
Ken made two pieces of Maple butcher block that will be placed on top of the interior frames! But off to powder coating first!
