Regardless of how big your shop is, having dedicated and efficient work space is always a good thing. If your shop space is small, that becomes even more critical, but again it is a good practice regardless. One thing we hate is having to cut tubing and materials on the ground or on a welding table and then having to move everything out of the way to start welding it together. This is where having a dedicated cutting cart or chop saw station can really come in handy. Now I’m a big fan of stuff that can roll around when needed, but it isn’t always necessary. I just like being able to move it where you need it, or where it will make less mess whenever possible. I’m also all for little touches that make the use of the work station even easier or simpler. Such is the case with this cool metal laminated metal cutting work station.
The build is super simple, with no mitered corners to worry about, and the idea of laminating sheet steel to plywood for the tops is something I really like. It makes doing repeated cuts with magnetic stops a really easy thing and also makes cleanup a lot nicer than a wood top table. And by using sheet metal the price isn’t bad at all.
Watch the build, be inspired, and share pictures of your projects with us. Who knows who you might inspire.
