Posting several completed projects as I’m new to LJ.

This is a roller stand that I completed a while back, but I find it very useful. I give all the credit to Dempsey Woodworking (http://www.van-vliet.org/dempseywoodworking/rollerstand.shtml). Found their plan online and modified it only slightly. Their plan calls for a much wider top than I went with. The height is adjustable from as low as 30” to as high as 52”. It was a fairly easy build so I built two. They are getting lots of service in my shop.

I must have messed up the link somehow….

The roller bearings on top were from Lee Valley (item # 99K52.20). They’re 1” steel rollers. Yes, they roll in any direction. Makes it useful for sliding panels or catching a long board.

I did make up a SketchUp plan for this. If anyone’s interested, let me know.

I’d like to see the sketchup plan. Their top is much wider. Yours looks much more sensible
