This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Metal Working.

For this BB, you will be making a welding table (3’x4’ or bigger, adjustable pad feet or coasters, apron to clamp to, ¼” thick flat top or grating for torch work)!

Here is what one might look like:


Point range for this BB is 8 to 16.  A typical welding table would earn 8 points.  Something from a professional craftsman would be 16 points.

Minimum Requirements:
 - 3’x4’ or bigger
 - adjustable pad feet or casters
 - apron around the edge to clamp to
 - ¼” thick flat top or grating for torch work
     - top may be solid pieces with deliberate gaps

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - The supplies you're starting with
 - Partway through the build
 - The finished welding table
 
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
