    Seriously, under fab-table space is usually completely under utilized. You're giving up on so much cubic footage it's sad.

    If you don't need the cross bracing for the legs (like the above bench), you could make a cart that fits under there and rolls out for easy access to all your stuff. It would be easier to build than making a drawer that served the same function.

      Well I got my new welder today so it's time to start on a multi-function garage size table (10 x 4 won't cut it for home use).

        excellent details

        Rob G, thank you for all those great ideas and detail shots. I made my take on a torch holder clamp today, and quite like it.

            Here is my Mig gun holder. I just have holders under the table so I can move it around.

                Here is my ajustable light when I need one. I was messing around with a C clamp and Brazed it to a plate and welded 1" tubing to that and inserted 3/4" tubing with a small shop light in it. I welded a nut to the 1" tube and a 16 penny nail to the bolt to lock it at any place.... It will be over my head and shining down on the weld.

                  I also took my grinder and cut notches in the corners of the big table for a cheep ruler guide. Longer notches for full inch and half notches for 1/2 inchs...

                  five or more tapes laying around and you can not find one when you need one!

                    My small table I started with and now use it for cutting and clean up. I use the mounted grinder to cut and clean edges for welding and the swamp cooler motor for well you know... I saw that on a forum years ago with the grinder from a guy named Ernie L. ???????? I took the grinder that it was built for off because it was one of the H/F grinders and it would walk all over the floor if I was not holding it down and to noisy.... The De Walt is much quiter and more amps..

                      modular table

                      One of my first projects was to build a table out of some scrap angle and plate I picked up at one of those "by the lb" places. It's about 60" wide x 38" deep with a .25" top. Now I need a table to catch the slag from cutting with the torch, and I need to mount a post-dolly and bead roller, but don't have any space in the garage. My solution was to build a "work-station" for metal-mooshing. I welded in two 3" square horizontal tubes under my welding table. In these slide 2.75" square tubes with holes to lock into different positions in the outer square tube. These smaller horizontal square tubes are welded to vertical square tubes, which act as receivers for different tools. In the pic I've got a post-dolly stuck in the end. I can remove the receivers when not in use and store them under the table.

                      I also wanted to make a cutting table for my torch, so I welded angle on to the horizontal 3" square tubes to act as a shelf for a frame I made out of angle. I also added some angle above the shelf to keep the sliding frame from tipping when extended. I filled the frame with angle, and now I have a cutting table I can slide away under my welding table when I don't need it. Ian

                            Slide out

                            I like the slide-out feature. I have limited space, would work well.
