so I’ve been poking around trying to figure out which solution will work best for this bench. I think the 2×4 with swing down casters will work, but like others I don’t want to be shoving my foot under the bench to engage the device. I’ve got plenty of 2×4, but I still need to invest in my casters and the other hardware. I found one of the threads here on LJ about it. I like the idea with levers from Wood Magazine (#178 Sept 2007), I’m just not sure I want to cough up the $8 for the plans. I’m figuring the bench will be about ~125 lbs finished. Better get back to the research!
