Smaller work bench

Due to the size of The Lone Ranger, the table I had previously was not really working out well for me. So Off to the scarp pile again to get some more steel for the base:

Burned it together:

Then I did something stupid, managed to use my jack stands to hold my cross brace in place and trapped them :derp:

I found some composite grating that I used for the lower shelf. This way there is less surface to collect dust and junk:

All painted up:

And in place:

I need to find a vice to stick on the corner, but otherwise it holds my tools quite well and provides me a small work space. Its smaller depth also means that I can now pull longer vehicles into the garage and still be able to (barely) walk around them, so win!

Welding / Fabrication Table

Given that I always seem to be welding and fabricating in my little garage, I decided it was time to get off the floor and onto a welding table. Off to the scrap bin to grab some material to make a frame:

Started burning the legs to the frame:

I got a large piece of 3/8” plate from work for the top, thankfully the table height worked out to be the exact same height as the F-250 bed so I just slid it out of the truck onto its home:

Finished up:

I never got around to painting it, and sadly it spends most of its life covered in crap. But it is very nice to have available for those larger to medium sized projects. I’m hoping my next garage will have a little more room to use this bad boy for something other than crap collecting.
