    That thing is going to be WAYYYY too flimsy for anything other than maybe folding paper airplanes on. Get something stout to use as a welding table, this will never hold up to anything.

    That looks great!

    I always like looking at how different people answer the question of casters/no casters/hybrid.

    Wow! Did you reinforce the floor before building the table?
    Wish I had a table that nice!
    Gravel

    The difference between theory and practice is that in theory there is no difference.

    Great table. The mechanical wheel lift is cool, especially when viewed from the other side. I like that you recycled old equipment to build it.

    Hey thanks! Ya nothing better than reusing something that would have otherwise gone to the scrap yard.

    Nice table JD. The only thing I would do would be to swap the caster wheels end to end. That way the swivels are up in the air when you're working. If you get to tugging on something on that end, it might want to walk on you.
