Here is a few photos of my new welding table. The frame is 2 1/2" 11 ga box tubing welded to 3/8" plate to support the castors. The table top is ~ 2'x5' of 3/4" plate. Each of the castors are rated at 350lbs. I am not sure if I should put shelves under the table so I guess I am still in the planning stage. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yes it is my first welding table. I was tired of welding on the floor.

The table looks good. Is that 3/4" plate?
I recently had a similar project -- a very heavy piece of steel and no one to help move it. It was an interesting challenge to get it out of my truck and onto the base I had for it -- interesting all over again when I realized I had to flip it and rotate it 180 degrees. I wish I'd had an engine hoist like that to help. Mine was 1" and weighed over 500 pounds.
Mine isn't my normal welding table, although it would work in a pinch.

Very nice looking job. I am sure you will enjoy having something like that to work on. I was lucky enough to be given a welding table. I put some levelers on the feet and three trailer jacks with wheels so that I can level it in place but also have the capability to move it around. I added some one inch pipe between two of the legs to hang clamps on.Bill

My suggestion about shelves (and other accessories) is to add them as
you figure out what you need and what works best for what you are
doing. I've found that as I've set up several home workshops, that
I've thought that such-and-such would be a good thing to have,
only to find out later that i'd really rather have had a so-and-so,
or that the such-and-such was the wrong size, once i started to use
it, etc, etc, etc.

Looks good. but I don't like my table to move. But thats just me.

Actually the table top is a tad over 3/4" plate. Why did you choose such heavy plate for the top of the cabinet? The engine hoist that you had seen in the photos was about $125 from HF.
Thanks for the kind words. I wish someone had given me a table!
