Hey, I need a good workspace to do my carving on, so I totally volunteer to help you break it in…..BUT of course i’LL have to ask you to pick me up on the back of your Harley first :)

Good job! – Sure is better than the one I an currently using.
Ok – could you please tell us (me) how you were able to get a flat surface over a distance which appears to be about 5, or 6ft in length? This is where mine fails.

Matts_dad- The pics DO make the table look deceptively large…but it’s really only 88”x32” (I’m answering for Eric because his daughter has hijacked his comp…lol!)

Where did you get the wheel levelers? Are those casters the ones designed for contractors saws? They look very useful, giving you the ability to move your bench and also lower it when its in use.

Super:Great bench! Found the “Retracting Casters” on woodcraft. Also, any plans, per se on the design/ construction? Looks great.

With four layers of mdf it’s definitely going to be solid and heavy…..nice job! shelf space underneath gets filled up fast i bet too.
