Has this been tried before? I'm concerned with issues such as oil canning, weld burn-thru and temperature expansion/contraction.
The fab and strength won't be a whole lot different than the same thing in low strength steel. Welding stainless a is not difficult but it's different. The thermal expansion is greater, so you'll have a bit more distortion and stainless discolors when it's heated. It's also sensitive to chlorides in water.
