I have limited space right now and am going to make a 2'x3' welding table. Can I use 1/4" steel to tack onto the frame for the top or will it warp from various welding projects being done on it? Would I need to go to 3/8"?
How thick should a welding table be? The thickness of a welding table can be between ¼ of an inch up to 3 inches in thickness. However, there is not a set thickness that a welding table should be. However, you want to make sure you have something strong enough to support the weight of the materials you will be welding.
I'm looking to buy or build a cheap welding table. I only have a 50amp 110v stick welder, so I'm obviously working on smaller pieces. Something with a flat surface maybe 2' x 2' would work, larger is ok. I'm thinking about using a gas grill, taking off the "grill" portion and welding on a piece of 1/8" plate steel for the top. I've not yet located a junk grill though.
Anything else I could make one out of?
