that`s a pretty cool design! I`m just wondering why you opted for 6 legs? I don`t see the 3x3`s bending in any way and you will need a 200% flat floor to keep it stable...

Yeah, I was debating whether to add them with or without the casters. They will mostly support the shelves. I do have levelers on the corners to get it as level as I can. We'll see how it works out. This is an experiment and a work in progress. I'm sure I'll add things as I go. The levelers are a little flimsy. That too may change.

I'm still waiting to get some cabinets to mount under the table and some expanded metal to finish the table. I used it today to make a frame to mount on my utility trailer. With the adjustable spacing its easy to clamp things down.





I also bolted on my 1962 Wilton Bullet Vise.

I like It. Those gaps on top are handy.

Finally found the cabinets I wanted for the table. My neighbor gave me an old tanker style metal desk. They used to scrap thousands of these at work!
I just took the top and legs off.

Of course I had to cut the center legs outs to get them both to fit on one side. Had they not been tapered the would have fit!




Still got a few things to do but getting closer.

Cool addition! Keep the drawers closed, they fill up with metal fillings real fast.
