I’ve made multiple projects like this with welded steel legs. How do you explain the grinder marks to clients? I always tell them they either have the welds with the “industrial” sort of look or have a smooth surface, but with grinder polish. They always want the steel to stay the same color but be smooth…. which of course isn’t really very feasible

:Nice work, same as with your “twig tables”

I have a desk that I would like to build with metal legs in the same form, pretty much the same as this one, only larger scale.

Any advice on sourcing the metal? and would a small Lincoln MIG welder work for this? I inherited one from my F-I-L, but have yet to use it.

Nice job. I have built tables like this as well. Like the mixture of wood and steel. My buddy thats a retired Iron Worker showed me a way to grind the welds so you sone the the marks.

- TheWoodenOyster

Simple. “would you like a clear powder coat that leaves the grinder marks visible, or black/ gun metal or another color?”
Clear is popular

THanks.
I outsource all my metal work. My abrasives rep put me in contact with a few small shops.
