    Folding welding tablebtop

    This is for the folding table in one of my other posts here.
    It's made from garage door track, random hinges, random scrap and the roof skin from a fire-damaged 2001 BMW touring.
    I know that I should have boxed the shell in first, but I wanted to build the frame first for no rational reason. It worked out well enough.

    These turnbuckles hold the top open and closed. The handle doubles as a place to park the grounding clamp.

    Bonus: I made this greazy corner welding jig so that I could tack the inside and outside:
