So this is a little metal wood bedside table. It's a similar concept to the TB, stand that I built a little while back and basically kind of based it off of a 120-foot stick of one-inch square tubing. So I got that at the place I usually get my metal and had it cut down into 380-inch sections there, so it fits in the back of my truck and cost all $ 13.35. So I yeah got you know the bigger pieces, and then I cut them down to the smaller pieces there that I wanted with my band, saw and found on these oily mill scale tubes, that these Sharpie paint pens work pretty. Well, you just gotta.
Let the paint dry for a second, but you know, seems to stay on there pretty decent and it's just a little a couple nails with the heads cut off and a little thin piece of metal that I use is a little roller, some guiding the metal pieces There, through and cutting them with my little handsaw, I know, thought about trying to do a modification. With this stand of you know you could use a little handsaw on a horizontal style position, but you know kind of found with just guiding it through by hand. Is probably me for me gives me the best.
You know the straightest cuts you know even opposed to using a fence or something like that because you know the blade. You know this GP handsaw, it's you, you know exposed to kind of wonders either way. Sometimes so it's easiest just to guide it through, follow your lines and you can get really nice straight cuts so yeah. I got everything cut up here and you know got it all marked out and everything. So I know what your pieces are. What and a little bit of extra there, so I decided to polish you know all the all the metal down you know, give it a kind of a shiny finish, and this is one of those little uh.
Well, quick strip, woven disc things and worked really well cost about ten bucks from Home Depot and pretty well used it all up on this. One application so may try some of the cheap five dollar ones from Harbor Freight next time, but just checking my measurements here. Making sure everything's, nice and square before I start welding it up tacking it together and such so that's kind of one on. You know a nice way, especially if it's something big like a trailer frame or something you know just measure your opposite ends there and get them the same.
If you want to make sure everything's, nice and square so basically I'd you know, did the 45 degrees on the on that very top piece there and you know just welded my legs onto there and then used you know, but the four pieces for the middle shelf In this, in the center there, and just using a little vice grip here as a prop, it's always good to have everything in a comfortable position.
