    Mind telling me what steel supplier you got those prices from?
    The price for 1/4"x4'x10' is cheaper than I can get it for.

    I'm in PA also.

    Thanks.
    That price sounds pretty good to me too. I was just quoted $360 for a 1/2" x 4' x 4' plate for my talble top.

      The 2' X 3' 1/2" was about $160 at Metal Supermarkets.

            Welding the frame to the top will not warp it, hardly at all. I know machinists build everything micrometer flat...not needed with a welding table. I have a 1/2" x 60" x 30" with the legs welded to the top and no frame.

              If you build a frame and don't mount the top you can flip it over and use both sides if you should need to fixture an assembly then have to do another repair job. My current table is 3/16" steel and it is welded down and it will be the last time I do that, the top is rough and marred from grinding and tacking marks but the bottom is flat and clean, Kinda stupid in hind sight!

                Another good reason not to weld the top to the framework. I had not thought of that originally but it makes total sense.

                Great suggestion pjs!
