    i like it. it has a fully height adjustable top with color coded adjusters. now how cool is that. and to show its high dollar it even has a shiny new top that easily reversible. mind if i ask how long it took to build this fine piece of craftsmanship? can you please include some step by step instructions and pics of the assembly process? i think i might have enough materials around the farm to copy it if i take apart my coffee and dinning room tables. coarse my 4 girlfriends might want to divorce me if i dismantle the house hold furniture. but what the heck i'll make them happy with some fine rustic apple crates.

    Glad you like it The whole idea is portability. Table height is 34 the table size is 48x18 1/8 plate, in photo #2 I show the frame its 1-1/4x1-1/4 x1/8 sq stock picked up at the local supply yard. Im using .030 solid steel wire and a setting of 4/70 on my Millermatic 180. In photo #3 the vise is a key element to the table its also portable, and of course youll need tools, good tools are essential. Tools of the Trade

    seriously it looks like it will be a nice table when you get it done. nice and light and easy on the back. beats the heck out of a piece of plywood on a tree stump. be sure to show us farm billies pics of the finished table.

    that's a heck of a nice table you built Mr. Fab. was it your idea or did you find some plans for it? either way you did a great job on it and i'm sure guys will follow your lead. i like your welding shoes also lol. i was doing some plasma cutting this weekend showing my boy how well my new cutmaster 52 works and he got two lessons in one. forgot what shoes i was wearing and to his benefit he got his second lesson when he saw his dad do the jig and kick off my smoking not so new now super high speed tenny runners. now that those new shoes are broken in it shouldn't be to bad once i get the holes in them lined up right with the little blisters on the tops of my feet.

    Wondering if you could just cut the piece that you unbolt to fold and put a hinge pin in the middle of it with a little overweld catch on one piece so it can only bend in one direction, up when you lift it. That way you wouldn't have to unbolt it. Real nice job.
