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.

          So you made a table for a table and that table is meant to help you with the other table. Cause you don't have enough tables lol

            Jimbo have you ever considered installing a small overhead crane or hoist to help you lift some of the heavy projects on and off the benches?

                  Approximate cost for materials to build this? Basically 2x2 tubing and a sheet of steel?

                        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.

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
