Working in a lot of chemical plants, I see almost every welding table with a 2x2x1/8" angle welded to one side. It is used to hold little piece like blots, nuts, etc.
I would like to see some others means of "leveling" a table.
Hope that helps.They don't call me Lucky for nothin'.

I've got a small vise on one corner of my table and it is also wired with a 110 receptacle under one corner and a switch under another that controls a light above it. I've also welded a piece of pipe on one leg for a MIG Gun and a couple of hooks for my hood, stinger, whatever i happen to stick there. I also put a shelf under it for storing small things and tools.
As for how to level a table, the best way I know of is to weld a nut on the inside of each of the legs. Then just thread a bolt all the way into each one and back the ones out that you need to to make it sit level.At Home

My table is 4' X 6'. On one end I cut out an 18" X 30" opening that holds a piece of bar grate for cutting. There is a tray under that to catch slag, etc.
I built a 2' X 2' drawer about 4" deep to hold soapstone, small clamps, mig pliers, and small hand tools. One one end I welded a piece ot flat between 2 legs to hang larger c-clamps. Also welded lots of hooks to hang plasma cutter, mig gun, torch.
But most important, make sure you have room for a coffee pot, beer cooler, and first aid kit. (Just kidding, but barely.)

I am also for leaving tube ends (especially the longer ones) open extra versatility. I leave the lower tubes un-capped for the same reason.
Table extensions, a place to put a crowbar or pony clamp, a tube of filler rod, whatever you need at the time."If you build it, they will come!"
