All in Metalworking Projects
In this video, I built a Parsons-Style Extension Dining Table out of reclaimed Oak and steel. The base was constructed from readily-available steel tubing, and the top was made from reclaimed lumber and features an extension mechanism that will allow the top to expand 36 1/2” with the addition of two leaves, all without moving the base.
I built these simple yet beautiful modern planter boxes using Cedar from the home center and a few pieces of angle iron. I do have detailed plans available for this project here, which include a materials list, cut list, and SketchUp file.
I built this modern outdoor dining table out of Ipe 3x3s. Ipe is one of the most difficult woods I've worked with, it's insanely heavy and dense. I also built this pergola kit from TOJA GRID.
I built a farmhouse-style modern coffee table using a Southern Yellow Pine 2x12x16 and ⅛" steel for the base. I welded the steel base at Lincoln Electric's HQ using the Lincoln Electric Power MIG 210 MP and Squarewave TIG 200.

This week's project is a Walnut and copper cutting board or serving board, perfect for those charcuterie or cheese trays for your next party! These also make outstanding gifts, and you still have time to build one before Christmas if you get to work. Enjoy!
In this video, I’ll show you how to build a DIY concrete and steel outdoor end table. This design could be scaled to be a coffee table, side table, and more.
In this video, I show you how to build a welding table using a kit from WeldTables.com. The folks over there were nice enough to send me one of their welding table kits to use in my shop.
In Part 2 of the Modern Maple and Steel Coffee Table build, I show you how to build the welded steel base. They're simple and are a great welding project.
