Introduction: DESIGN CUTTING TABLE
I made this table with a revolving top on which I needed to cut any type of paper Designs with
lots of curves. It helps to turn the design around as it has a revolving top and it becomes easy
for cutting. It can be also be used as a drawing room display table.
I have made two of these and have put my speakers box on them and now I do not need to lift
them to change their direction.
You can see in the last photographs in this project.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: THINGS YOU WILL NEED
These are the parts required for this project.
Fig. 1- MS ROD (mild steel) of 18 milimeter diameter and 6 inches in length. Six pieces.
Fig. 2- GI-PIPE ( Galvanised Iron) 1 inches diameter and 20 inches in length. One Piece.
Fig. 3- MS FLAT ( Mild steel) 3/4 inches wide and 6 inches in length. Four Pieces.
Fig. 4- GI (Galvanised iron) PIPE of 7 inches in length and 1-1/4 inches in Diameter.
Fig. 5- GI ( Galvanised Iron) PIPE of 1/2 inches in length and 1-1/4 inches diameter
Fig. 6- 12" x 12"x 1/2" of Marble tile or Glazed tile or Wooden plank or anything you want to put on for a table top. I have used a piece of GRANITE.
ALL THE PIECES ARE MARKED IN THE PHOTO AS 1-2-3-4-5-6.
Step 2: ARC WELDING
In this step all the MS rods should be Arc welded, as shown in this Photograph.
All the 6 rods in (Fig 1) is to be aligned and welded to the iron pipe (Fig-2) to make the bottom
stand of the table, as shown in this photograph.
Care should be taken to see that the rods are perfectly flat to the floor, and the pipe is
welded at angle of 90 Degree.
Step 3: STOP RING
In this step the STOP RING (Fig 5) is to be Arc welded to the pipe leaving a gap of 6 inches from the top of the pipe.
Care should be taken to see that the ring is welded at the bottom side to the pipe so that the top side remains plain to allow the table top to rotate on it.
Step 4: Making the Table Top
In this step Arc weld the small thick PIPE to the 4 pieces of MS FLAT as shown in this photograph.
Fig 3 and Fig 4 are to be welded together to make the platform for the table top to sit on.
Care should be taken to see that they are welded at an angle of 90 degree to each other.
Step 5: FIXING THE TABLE TOP
In this step the top frame of Fig 3&4 is to be pasted or fixed to the GLAZED TILE or whatever
you use for the table top. Care to be taken to see that it is pasted as per the photograph.
I have pasted the GRANITE top to the frame by ARELDITE which is a Resin paste (Any of a
class of solid or semisolid viscous substances obtained either as exudations from certain
plants or prepared by polymerization of simple molecules) It comes in two tubes and has to
be mixed together in equal parts. It takes about 24 hours to dry and become rock solid.
Step 6: READY FOR ASSEMBLY
In this step the table top is placed on to the stand of the table. The top goes down up to the
stop ring so now it is possible to rotate the table top.
You will notice that the legs of the table are very steady because of the weight of the iron rods.
You will also notice in the photograph that a half inch rubber hose pipe is fitted to all the six
legs of the table stand to avoid friction with the floor this is optional.
Now you can do any job on it that requires revolving.
Step 7: DIFFERENT USES
As you can see in this photograph that this TABLE has multiple uses, and it is very easy to
construct if you follow all the instructions carefully. The cost will differ from country to country, I
made this table within Rupees 100/- ( Indian Currency) about two and a half US Dollars.
SO HAPPY REVOLVING.
