    Default Table: Stainless and Glass

    Here is a table I just knocked out for a local hotel.
    It is of simple construction, made from 2x2x.120 wall stainless 304 tubing.
    It received 1/2" glass for the top.

    Thanks for looking.

    1. and 2. Jigging it up and gettin' er done. For those of you that work stainless, you know that it don't much like to stay straight. Good procedure and patience is key here.
    3. I've been chillin' with an injury for a while, so I thought I'd better make a few practice runs before getting back into the game.
    4. Levelling feet and glass are right on target. Eye on the prize.

    Nice work as always.
    What did you use to blend the welds, they look awsome.
    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Thanks Tim.

    I/we have buffed out our fair share of stainless welds over the years and I've yet to unlock the secret shortcut version to success. I'm telling you, I don't know why, but there seems to be a different technique for every job. I don't know if they're giving me different stainless each time or what.

    I've tried all different kinds of grinders, sanders, grits, electric, air, you name it. There are no shortcuts... just a combination of elbow grease, a light touch, and persistence. You just have to stand back once in a while or you'll drive yourself crazy because stainless shows EVERYTHING. Sometimes, the more you buff... the worse it gets.

    ... did I mention the part about the black magic?

    Thanks man.

    I'd say I had at least $2K in materials. Pay to play, right?
