    Wish I had half a million dollars worth of CNC tools at my disposal when I built my table...  Impressive!  I was going to ask how you made those tube joints.

    Impressive, but why did you over engineer it to the extent you did?  That will be difficult to move even on casters.

    Over engineered, impossible.

    Joins are made with a CNC Plasma Tube Notcher. We can do tubing 1" to 8" Diameter and up to 12' Long

    Is this really the weight?  I have boat trailers that carry 2000+ lb. boats that weigh less than that.

    Its mostly from the cement block lol I dont know WTF its made from... a friend of mine made it with extra cement when they were at a site.  Its three inches thick 18 x 24 I wont be asking him to make any more LOL.  I found the exact kind I was looking for after he had finished.

    You have:

    18 x 14 x 3 = 756 cu in cement

    divide by cubic foot (12^3)

    756/1728 = 0.75 cubic feet cement

    determine weight at 150 lb/cubic foot

    150 x 0.75 = 112.5 pound cement block
    13 lb/wheel x 4 = 52 pounds wheels

    volume of maple
    73 1/2L x 39 1/2w x 1 1/2H = 4440

    4440/1728 = 2.6 cubic feet
    at 47 lb/cubic foot = 120 pounds (minus hole)

    about 282 pounds of wood, cement and wheels
    so you have about 652 - 282 = 370 pounds of steel, about twice that of a chevy engine block (180 pounds)

    Oh, made a mistake in the cement dimension...so there's less weight in steel than 370 lb

    Make a mistake about making a mistake.  I just typed the wrong cement dimension down.  It's still 0.75 cubic feet.

    I built a prototype sous vide bath (small one) just to get a feel on how the materials hold up, so I can make a larger unit later on.  Fun fun fun....  Just can't use my shop when I'm at work....
