Neat project and it looks functional.

How do you keep the table from rolling around while you are using it?

Great work, sounds like you thought things out for a few minutes. Should last for years.

The project looks nice and good use of resources.

However your write up could use some paragraph breaks and dozen or so periods. Simply put, it is hard to read, especially for us old guys.
