Metal Workbench, Welding Table Build
I built this metal workbench for metal work and welding small parts. I thought this would be a good metalworking project to knock the rust of my welding skills. I used 2x2 inch box steel for the frame and 1/4 inch steel for the top and shelf of the workbench. I will use this as a weld table for a while until I build a dedicated one on wheels but I wanted the bench to be solid and stable so I decided not to add casters. I painted the frame with a farm equipment spray paint from Ace Hardware (Ford Grey) and finished the top and shelf of the bench with paste wax. As for the video, I wanted to try something a little different. Metalworking is a little dirtier and grittier than woodworking(in my opinion).
Here is the paste wax I used to protect the top and shelf (affiliate) https://amzn.to/2VBEV3O
