He here I am trying o make a table while wait for the kit arrives, so want to ask for the ones that have built a table before, which is the thickness of the beams that have you used, or if anyone made one out of aluminum.
I mean, my point is which should be the thickness of the beams, if they were like 2 inches wide by 4 inches tall, since wonder how high this should be to make the lowrunner go seamlessly. And since I want to cut 4*8 feet pieces, I am thinking about making it a total of 60*115 inches, to have a total of 2 extra inches on each side for clamping, so maybe I can get any suggestions coming from you all.
Also about the legs, how many do you recommend me, 4 or 6 legs?? and where should I place them, like one foot inside the table to avoid hitting my toes or should they be placed on the inside of the long beams just for support?.May 11, 2019 at 3:54 pm #100126
Personal suggestion, 6 legs with significant diagonal cross bracing. I am putting the frame edge back 4 inches from the edge of the table and legs inside that. Also, given my floor, putting leg levelers is needed to adjust to the floor.
I hope this helps.May 12, 2019 at 2:18 pm #100226
Thanks, Jack, that will be of great help now I am more confident about the kind of build I need to do.June 11, 2019 at 7:29 pm #103151
How is it going? Any pix?June 13, 2019 at 4:43 pm #103301
Yes, I did finish it, and well, to begin with, took me some effort learn a bit about welding, so it actually took me some time, but I am confident with the table, its pretty sturdy and no way that it’s moving neither with me dancing on it, but was not able to really come with the levelers
I will post some pic later, because my phone was stolen and lost everything, and now I am out of the country
