My welding/plasma cutting table

I needed a welding table and a plasma cutting table, but I did not have room for (2) separate tables in my garage. So I came up with my idea and built it. I still have some finish work to do like shelves, vise, outlet boxes, etc but here it is so far:

Welding table



Flip side of table with fold down plasma cutting table




The legs fold in to stow and out to support the plasma table




The slats are sacrificial and removable




The slat holders on the table. This part was pretty tedious...





With the slats put into the holders




The sleeved leg swings on a bolt and is held in place with a pin when extended








The leg's height can be adjusted to level out the table if needed. This is how I did that:

Plasma cutter, eh? Lucky guy! Looks like a smart way to save space and still have adequate support. That's got to be better than laying everything on the floor.

I'm always trying different things to maximize workspace. The Tacoma is the longest vehicle I've had, so it's a squeeze getting it all the way inside. My next project is putting wheels on my bench and a large set of drawers so I can quickly shuffle them around for more garage depth. As it is, my truck is almost bumping my toolbox when I close the overhead door.
