I carved this steel coffee table out of a single piece of a steel wide flange beam W12x53 that was 5’6″ long. The beam weighed about 265lbs and cost about $275. I cut the beam with my angle grinder and used about 12 cutting wheels. A cutting torch would have been faster but this really didn’t take that long. I polished the metal with 80 grit flap discs on my angle grinder. All in all, this project took around 5 hours and cost about $300.
