Has anyone had problems with warpage due to humidity? Don't suppose much of a problem in Utah and
S.Calif. Also any problems with compression of the wooden legs. We used VERY strong sawhorses with a large square tube steel spine and saw dimensional changes over time. How flat and square did your frames come out after welding?

I haven't had any of the problems you mentioned, but it is very dry here.  Is my frame perfect? No, but I'm sure it will be just fine.  I've also setup a method to string the car..............

.............. on the table and later on the salt if I feel it is needed.  As I said before I wouldn't use a wood table for production work, but can't see how it can be beat for a one off car, especially a one off special construction car where you are constantly locating items in space....



It doesn't cost much to build one and if you aren't happy do like Dan said and burn it  cool,
