    I thought I could save money by just using my left over 2x4's, but then I saw all the machinery and just decided to buy one

    I would think the leveling feet would negate the advantage of the wide legs. Did you end up having problems with racking?

    The weight of the table top must have it's own gravitational pull....:-)

    Warning - Welding on zinc-coated steel can be very dangerous and cause blood poisoning which can kill you in a day. It has happened to people. Beautiful bench - nice job!

    It's your table, but why would you cut off all that extra working space from the ends????????

    You can buy adjustable feet for a few bucks at the hardware store. Why waste all that time , effort and money making them?

    Those through many mortise legs will eventually stand proud of your benchtop. Side grain shrinks to a greater degree than end grain.

    Could have used stopped mortises and cut the tenons slightly shorter than mortise.

    What would you say the final dimensions were of those legs once you planed them down? And any thoughts on just using 4x4's instead?

    I feel like everyone has a welder except for me lmao I was nodding along like “yeah I could do that maybe, skip that, don’t need to plane that... I could nail/screw down a flat board instead of all that Jazz... oh welding? Fuck that next video ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”

    Edit: honestly a good video, I like the editing and I like how compartmentalized you kept the project so nothing was too overwhelming. My only critique as far as the quality of your video goes is maybe a weld setting on the camera, some people may have epilepsy and the flashes from your tig might be dangerous.
