Bringing this thread back.

Picked up all of my materials today to make the table.
It will be 1/8 x 24" x 48" with 12" tall 20ga windscreens.
Found the last set of folding table legs.

1/8" sheet metal is plenty for this application.
We have a cargo trailer to haul our gear so I figured to make the table a tad larger.
Also picked up pipe legs and paint to make some plow disk stands.
Will post photos as I go.

PostPosted: Tuesday 12-31-2013 9:45 am    Post subject: Aluminum table??? Reply with quote

Iíve built a cooking table based on Joanneís design. I also built a wind screen made out 22 gauge aluminum (too flimsy) to go with the table. I used the same type of folding legs but unfortunately when I welded the brackets they were to far apart therefore , so I usually use a tie-wrap to hold them in the locked position. Now Iím thinking of making a bigger one to handle more DO, increasing the size from 16X32 to 18 x 42 or even 48Ē
Here I was thinking of using the 3/16 plate that I have , but Joanne claims itís too heavy, so Iím also thinking of using aluminum, I have access to a friend that can weld and bend aluminum. My question would be what thickness should the table be avoiding warping of the aluminum due to the heat of the briquettes? I saw a picture in one of the previous pages that someone (cliffmeister2000) had a piece of 3/16 aluminum and it had warped. So any suggestions?

Screen, I'm sorry about forgetting to post photos.
There was a time deadline while building the table and I didn't have time to take many shots.
At this link from October I've got some shots of the table:
http://camp-cook.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6021&highlight=

This link has some of the same photos plus my plow disk build:

Sparky567, 3/16" mild steel plate will be too heavy.
The 1/8" mild steel I used was just right for me but even that might be too heavy for some folks.
For the cost of aluminum, you may be better served using mild steel.
But, I wonder if you were to weld some angle aluminum supports to the full length of the 3/16" aluminum plate on the bottom that it may not warp?

You are right about the 22ga steel being flimsy. 20ga seems to be the thinnest that would work.

No problem.
Am glad Joanne got this thread started.
It's real nice to work from a standing position.
I've since switched to shielding gas for the MIG and cleanup is so much better.

Although I am curious! Did you cut down the legs to be at proper height? The first table I built, I shaved 3", fortunately the style of leg allowed me to do so, but now I am working on getting a different set of legs, which probably will not allow to do so.

I'm tall so I didn't cut anything off the legs and the height was perfect.

I've liked the walker idea from the start. Here's the maiden voyage from this past weekend's camping trip.





Industrial scrap aluminum, walker, wire shelf from another camper closet + a license plate windscreen.

New to DO Cooking! Thought I'd share my first table and the one I just built for more space from tips from here! Thanks for the great Ideas!

1st Table

The tub came from Tractor Supply, built the rest with scrap I had.

I live the washtub windscreen. It's a perfect project for us non-handy types.
