    Not earth shattering but could come in handy .
    I was working on a granite recliner table for myself . The table Legs will slide under my recliner adjust up An down an also have an extension that pulls out underneath granite . So I can have my computer , digital tablet etc . Conviently in front ..
    But as I was cutting the 1″ square tubing with 1/8″
    Walls I made a short cut . So I was looking for a easy fix . I found some 5/8″ solid square stock an cut a 3″ long piece with my metal carbide saw .. this stock drove tightly in so I didn’t even have to weld .
    tjis worked so well I will have other size square stock for other sizes of tubing .

    Looks really good and no one will even notice or if they do will think it is a design cue. Nice idea on the table.

    Good tip! Did you use the metal carbide saw for the tubing as well?

    Yes , the carbide saw gives a straight , clean no heat cut .

    No such things as mistakes. They are design feature opportunities.

    Nice work on the table Gerald. Nice how certain sized solids fit nicely into tubing.
