    I had a need for a longer table that I had very specific measurement requirements for. I decided that I would play around with it this weekend. Nothing really special here. Just some 1/4" flat bar and 1" square tubing welded together to make the frame and a piece of mahogany for the top. I made the tubing plugs out of white UHMW plastic and I really like the look of the contrast between the black painted steel and the while feet. Anyway, it was fun for a quick weekend project.

    The table is not actually for this particular space and it's just sitting there until it's dry. I'm not sure if these pictures will show it or not but the basic construction was to weld together a rectangular frame made of 1/4" X 1 1/2" steel flat bar. I made the cap of the welds a little excessive so that I could grind them down and round the outer edges of the steel. I then welded the legs to the inner corners of the original rectangular frame. I welding in a couple of support pieces as well along the longer lengths of the flat bar. The brackets that hold the table top in place are just 2" long sections of 1" square tubing with a hole drilled through and then welded in place to accept a #10 X 2" screw to hold the table top in place. Like I said....a simple table for sure. Had fun making it though.

    Very nice. I guess those flat boards aren't so bad after all.

    I wouldn't call what I do "welding skills" Barry. I just stick metal together.
