Nice job Shawn, glad it’s finished up. :-)
Clever thinking with the drawer pulls.

You should do a drill press table next.

Sean, another nice video. While I was watching I was thinking this will be too heavy to lift and most likely your wheels in plywood will break under the pressure. I used a similar wheels design for this bench.

The solid oak wheel holders work very well.

This also became to heavy to lift so instead of a bottle jack, I designed a simple lifting fixture made of a 2×4. It’s basically a “T” shaped contraption with a hinge, Kind of like an old style jacks you would find on cars. It then works as a lever.

Keep up the great work. Bob
