Came across this today.. Thought it was pretty slick in terms of engineering.. not so much in terms of practicality..

I’m with you, Superstretch…. Fascinating, brilliant, and pretty much pointless. :-)

Very good engineering, but my thought was that he has way to much time on his hands. and I also think it is rather pointless.

I would kind of like this design for a workbench, if a locking mechanism can be added so it doesnt move when I try to plane a board.

@Broglea – interesting question! It looks like he applies more force laterally through the entire thing than it would take to slide the table..

Seeing how it needs a smooth flat surface, free of even the smallest dip or bump, I’m thinking why not have a set of casters.

I don’t know, it seems like it could be used by an old couple that’d still like a table to use outside but don’t have much room. They’d be able to easily with little effort push it against the wall when not in use and then just pull it out to use it. Of course, I’d imagine it’d need a way to lock it.
