    I don't think that you would have a problem with either choice of materials. In my opinion the tube looks much nicer and considering you are going to have it for a long time....why not?

    I have mine on wheels now. I think in this picture there is still dross from plasma cutting the pieces for the table top. I want to raise the lower shelf up a bit. Too low to the ground. I also I need to add some tool hangers for wrenches, air tools and clamps. I just stitched the 1/2" top to the frame to make sure it didn't warp the top at all. My tubes are 2x2x.120 and that is more than enough.

    Here is the table in use building a tube bender. The overhang along the edges let's me clamp projects down and I really like the 2" slot in the middle to clamp things in the middle of the table. Comes in handy.

    I used 3" drill pipe for the legs on my table. I got some 1/2 " plate left over off a job . it was originally two tables but I joined them together to make one table 12' x5' . after having a table with angle iron legs I noticed it was a lot harder to move and most times when a leg got hung up on something it wants to bend didn't have that problem with pipe or tubing.going to be making a smaller table 4'x4' for the rear of my shop something small so I can move it outside or inside depending on wheather.i also weld an angle iron to the side of all my tables that way it serves as a soaopstone holder or small tool holder and aslso when a small pipe job comes up it's very easy to just lay the pipe in the angle iron and tack it no need to waist time making sure the pipe is square the angle iron does it for you.

    The amount of weight is limited by the rating on the casters. They hold 500lbs. a piece I think. Thanks

    My top is 4x4x3/8's. Just a little advise, bolt your top to the frame. It may not be flat after if you weld it. My plate was convex, but after bolting it laid perfectly flat.

    Good luck, Ja
