Next welding project was a base for a new kitchen table.
The table top was made by The Wooden Duck from wood reclaimed from the Cal Memorial Stadium. The top is 42 x 72 inches, and is 2.25 inches thick.
The table bed is made from 1.5 x 4 inch steal tubes, and the legs are made from 3 x 3 inch tubes. The table legs conceal leveling feet that are recessed into the legs, preserving the simple lines of base. The table top is simply bolted onto the table bed with some lag screws hidden in the tubes.
This is a very sturdy table. The whole thing probably weighs between 200 and 300 pounds. If you can’t get out of the house, go under this table in the next earthquake.
