I turned 50-year-old bed posts and 20-year-old steel into a coffee table.
I used the following tools in this project:
Metal detector (always good when working with recycled timber)
DeWALT cold cut saw
Plunge saw with a guide
I have collected my tools over a long period of time. All of the above are not needed to do the job but they do make it easier. You definitely need a welder, angle grinder, saw, drill and clamps for this project.
