WOW!  You weld pretty dog gone good my friend!  Super start!  But can we change the color of it please?  Red is not my most favorite color..hahahaha....just kidding!  Can't wait to see this project as it progresses and you know you could make a few and sell to the public, to earn enough money to pay for yours and then maybe a future business in this would earn you some extra money to spend as you please!! Always dream big, the bigger the better!! Smiley

I'm a little closer to finishing, I am trying to come up with how I am going to make an adjustable feed tray.

I'm finished!!! I decided to go with a fixed tray holder and adjustable legs. The deck height can be adjusted from 14 inches to 20 inches. I may build a different style tray holder later on, but I'm gonna give this one a try and see how well it works out.

Thanks for all the positive comments. I am pleased with how it turned out. I am thinking about making these for sale. I am not sure what would be a reasonable price for them.  How much would you pay if you were in the market for one?
