These where my first woodworking projects. I used 1/2 square steel to build the frames. Nothing to say about the design, I didn’t create anything in this way. I did learn the how and why of a jointer on this one!

Looks like a nice simple straight forward table. Not to high artistic, i think the metal helps it to not be to boring.

Thank you. For the welding, it’s easy with these little mig units, some practice and of course, a buffer! There is plenty of great welding tutorials on the web.

Gixxerjoe,

I don’t know how you feel about Harbor Freight stuff but, they do sell a little 90 amp wire feed welder that makes a good starter unit. If you catch it on sale you can get it for right under a hundred bucks. I got one and it has done everything I’ve asked it to. And yes there are some good instruction type videos online that will help a lot. But, the best way to learn is by doing!!!! I also have a tiny little arc welder that I use a bunch. I wouldn’t be able to build anything heavy with either unit but, they are fun to use if I want to stick a little metal together from time to time. If you have time check out the sander rebuild blog I posted. I wouldn’t have been able to build the parts I needed without my little welder and a good grinder.
