I love it. I put it in myself. Clean up is easy, since it's non-porous. You can walk barefoot on it. And it was 68 cents a square foot from Home Depot, for commercial grade tiles. They've held up to dropped tools and jacks fine, so far. Welding slag will burn them, though.
As a 39 years of experience fabricator that I am I have to say You are a natural Good Job only thing That I havent done is use wood for fixtures but it works without a table to build a fixture I have built a fence panel and welded small plates on pickets and runners to use as a fixture this way all panels are the same but again you should be proud of your acomplishment thanks S NUNEZ
Great job. You may give some thought to growing vines on your beautiful fence. The fact that it is made of steel will require maintenance and the vines would make it difficult to repaint. None the less it is a beautiful addition to your home.
that shop looks waaaaaaaaaaayyyy too clean and organized
job looks good though. i'm surprised you went with tubing, solid bar wasn't cheaper?

Nice garage! The steel bench hinges out far enough that the bench can fold up vertical? I see the adjustable feet you put on the legs. Good idea.
Was reading your narrative and thought to myself; "this person writes" and then seen the WGA sign on the wall by the garage door.
I too like jigs, and wood works fine for me too.
You sure did a nice job of it. Beautiful looking fence, the way it turned out. I've never done anything like that, but I would say you should be able to smile pretty big when visitors come over to visit and comment on it. Kudos.

Don't sell yourself , short. That's a fantastic looking fence. What brand of cold saw do you have? Is it high rpm or low? Looks like it would beat using an abrasive cut-off saw ten times over, especially inside. Thanks for sharing all the pics and the experience.
