    Nice work.

    Unless you are welding directly to the table top, no fire hazard. If you ground clamp is getting hot enough to be a fire hazard, fix the ground clamp/lead.

    I welded on a plywood table top for a while before I built my 1/2 inch thick welding table. I had a few burns, but that's about it.

    Now, tell us more about the front bend and how you did it

    Smile Ground?

    From the looks of the heat ring around your ground (work) stud, something isn't making good contact. Perhaps you should hard wire this connection?!

    Default ground

    I tig welded a bolt to the table to make my ground clamp connection. There is no resistance there. The heat you see is from that process

I havent wleded much directly on the bench much I have been raising my work off the bench. I agrre about the fire hazard,wish I had thought about the cement tile backer
    John,
    I know that some members feel it is a fire hazard and some do not. Why take a chance? Hardibacker is cheap and it would be easy to install. Then you would never worry and you would not have to be concerned about elevating your work. I would think that 1/4" would be just fine. That is one sharp bench.
