Shop Table Build - Jimbos Garage

  • Published: 19 February 2016
  • Jimbo finally built a custom metal table for his new lathes. This table is a little bit shorter than his welding table because when working with lathes it is helpful to position your self over top of the table. This table can be used for multiple purposes and is super heavy duty.

    There are some great add-ons coming to this table that will make it even more useful.

        How do you keep from rusting? I love the raw metal look but I would hate it to rust. It's super wet where I live by the coast.

                                              I really enjoyed this video. Approximately what would the parts for this table build cost? Price for the flat sheet alone and that for the framing material. Is there a rough pricing estimate per square foot for such sheets such as used as the top? Chris

                                              Course Scotch bright hand pads and dish soap with water is the easy way to clean/prep/remove/grease & light rust on metal, then just wipe with shammy & blow off with compressed air.
