If you are regular here on BANGshift then you know that welding is one of the things I like most. And that means that welding projects and helping you guys learn how to weld is something I love being a part of. So whenever I find a good project or exercise that will help you become a better welder or help you weld in the shop, then I am all about sharing it. This is one of those projects. When I saw the Artfully Rogue built table, I was impressed and immediately thought about a couple things I’d add to it as well. This is a cool welding table, built with simple tools and welding equipment, although if it were me I would weld the entire thing with a MIG welder instead of a combination of stick and flux core wire feed. I know not everyone has a MIG machine, but with the availability of cheap machines that work surprisingly well at every corner store, now is the time to get yourself a MIG welder like all the cool kids have.
But back to the table. The way in which it was built is simple, very effective, and pretty cool looking as well. There is no reason that you can’t build this at home if you follow these steps. Plus, you can add whatever you like to it and make it your own. I have never had a welding table that tilts, but after looking at this one and a couple others I’m thinking it isn’t a half bad idea. I like it. I especially like the idea of making it automated so that you don’t have to struggle to tilt the thing, especially when it has something clamped to it for welding.
There are tons of other little storage and tool mounting ideas I have that I want to use on my next welding table build, but this one would make an awesome foundation for those ideas, that’s for sure.
