      ok , ok , so it wasent a coaster, but you could put a glass on it.
      here ya go, my coaster entry, i been buisy so i went with the quick simple solution. but it will hold the glass as a coaster just fine.
      as for the table being sold dont have a market to sell it in and it needs a glass top. i think i found some 3/4" plexerglass for it.
      its realy a lot neater than it looks in the pic. the white part is3/4" below the black top and is pre-drilled sheet. i also added weld beads around the round stock to make it look like bam-boo, its also got ajustable feet pads to keep it level, and i signed it.
      if you want one like it i can probly find the template i made the top from to send ya.

        now common thats cheating i dont have any 41/2 cut off wheels all i have is 3`s . I guess il just have to settle for a walmart coffe table . I will see when i can work on mine but im leavin for a few days so i can get my boaters safety license for the summer and visit relatives. Im going to see if i can get some practice in cause uncles got an old miller ac/dc stick a lincoln wirefeed with strait argon, plasma, and a nice hobart champion 10,000 hehe his house is like the candy store except if you try to steel stuff there you get shot . I might get to do some more skete shooting too.

        Hey wireburnner have you gotten a chance to get a us some pics yet? Lookin forward to seein it .
        welding...its awsome

              Hard to see, but I THINK it looks cool !
              Did you etch it with the plasma? or is it cut right through?
              I have some tempered glass that would make a great table, just need to find the time...

                      i freehanded mine. did a little bit of fileing with a jewlers file after it was cut but i wqs on my last set of consumables, so that didnt help. its also hard to keep a constant speed when freehanding small intrecate shapes. the only drawback to plasma is sitting on one place too long starts to create slag and a wider cut. all in all i been realy happy with my little plasma cutter though. looking to upgrade it to the spectrum375 if and when i can now that i have air to feed it.
                      when i got mine i did not have a decent air compresser so i had to go with the spec.125. but i would like to start making targets for larger cal. bullets so i need to be able to cut thicker steel.
                      i generaly use standerd carbon papper to trace the design onto the steel then i go over that with an ingraveing tool so the lines wont come off with heat or rubbing when cutting it.
                      the biggest thing to lern or get used to is negative spaces, gotta make shore they dont conect or it all falls out.
                      but with a lil thinking almost anything is possible.

                      OK guys how is this for my coaster entry?? its my TIGGerr coaster.

                          here is a walk threw of my POW*MIA flag holder. its a smaller version of the table for holding a 3'X5' flag. but it shows the hole process.
                          i also added a hanging version for under a mail box insted of the ugly 2X4 brace. i also add a flag holder to the hanging version for those that want it on a 4X4 post. but i dont have a pic handy. if i find one i'll post it to on the next thread.

                                James,
                                may be a dumb question, but I'm guessing you're making everything out of steel and not aluminum, right? Then, how are you prepping it? Just a hand sander and what kind of paint?
                                thanks in advance,
                                bert
