Fabrication table---Let's see them

I would like to see what everyone builds on. My table is pretty basic and I am looking to upgrade. Chassis table....maybe? Is there something else besides laying everything out on the floor....there has to be. OK, let's see um.

Here is my big table, it is about 4x8'. Got it for free and just added castors and electrical boxes at opposite corners. My other fab table is about 2'x6' with a 3/8" top and is 24" high.

Yep, saw the article but I was wanting to see some bigger tables. Maybe something a complete tube chassis could be fabbed on. I have a 4x8x1/2" table but have been thinking about something bigger. I also like the unique things people do to make things work. I really like the table with the dropped chopsaw table on it.

This is my Table, 5' x 10' "3/4 plate. It has 6 inch I beams under it. That I pick up for free. I also ran two electrical boxes under each side.
It also has a fold up cutting table attached.

Just a tip. For your grinders portabands and electical tools replace or splice in a longer cord. I have an outlet in my shop every 5 feet of wall space and it still comes in handy to have a 15' cord.

That's an awesome table TitanFab! I think that could almost qualify as a chassis table too

One of the local guys introduced me to another scrap yard and we saw the perfect fab table setting ready made on top of a pile, ready to get scrapped. Heavy beams and looked like it was pretty much ready to go.

There was also an old machine tool there with a roughly 4x4 cast iron t-slotted table, probably 5" thick, and setting on a turn table that was equally massive. Talk about a killer welding/fab table! But it looked like the t-nuts would have been about 1.25" wide!

If I had the room they both could have come home with me for $0.10 per pound. Probably could have had it all for under $100. Man I need a bigger shop!

Where to you find grate like you have folding up on this fab table. I want to do something similar because I do a lot of cutting with my plasma...

I got mine from Sabel steel in Montgomery Al I bought it for a carwash job I was doing, I had 8' left ofver. Most any of the larger metal supply business have it. It is expensive. One piece I bought back a couple of years ago, 3x3x1 inch was 35$

It's commonly refered to as Bar Grating, and it comes in a few different sizes. Around here the most common size is with 3/16" X 1 1/4" bars, and yes it is expensive.

Been meaning to add this on for awhile now.
I made this entirely for free (minus my time). The top is 5'x6', 1/2" plate. I used 1" bolts for the leveling pads (i even got those for free). I still need to paint the underside and maybe add a shelf and outlets...
