I want to build a welding fixture table, Cast iron ones are out of my budget, so I am going to design one of these in CAD and get it laser cut. All the tutorials I've seeen end up MIG welding them together, however do you think it would be possible to use some sort of epoxy/JB weld to hold it togeether to avoid any sort of distortion? My goal is to make it as flat as possible in order to achieve the same accuracy as acast and machines table surface, but being affordable like a laser cut one.

My plan is to hold it together with squares and clamps while the epoxy hardens, maybe design it so that once it is square the epoxy can be injected into the braces and cure, that way you can square it first and then add the glue so it doesn't distort.
