• The bench top will tilt from flat to almost 90°
• The bench top will rotate through a full 360° in 45° increments
• The bench weighs around 140 pounds, but might weigh less if lighter wood is used. But weight can be added to the lower legs if so desired
• The bench can be disassembled for moving into six pieces – two sets of legs, a pair of cross members, the tilting mechanism and the bench top. It can be separated into two components for carrying – the bench top assembly and the stand assembly
• You can use fancy metal hinges, or make your own wooden hinges for the bench top
• Other than bolts, screws and a metal spring, there is no need to use any other material than wood for this project. Even the steel rod in the locking mechanism can be replaced with a hardwood dowel
• The power equipment used in this project is common to many shops.
