Going to make a log catcher for the log splitter using leftover material that includes angle iron for the brackets to support the table and 1 1/4" x 24" x 1/8" flat steel for the table. The support brackets underneath the table top will be spaced about 18 inches apart since that is where the oem holes already exist. I do not have access to a welder so everything will be bolted together. I read that its helpful to have open space between the table slats so that bark and debris can fall through the table and out of the way. Im thinking that a 3" space between each table slat would be good but am open to suggestions.
