Hey TopamaxSurvivor, Yup, it just glides back and forth on aluminum wheels. You wouldn’t believe how effortless is moves to.. I can see it glide back and forth on its own if there’s a breeze..
Now if I could get 4 days straight without any rain, I can stain it… :—)

Jow do you power it when you are settting on it? Looks like both seats and the table move as a unit.

The foot deck is actually attached to the base. there’s about a half inch clearance for the top deck rails to glide back and forth..
