Sounds like a heroic bit of engineering for
a one-off. You could adapt an electric scissor
jack but you might find the lift range unacceptable.

Another way to do it is with 4 threaded posts
fitted with sprockets on the bottom ends, like
a planer table. An electric gearmotor would drive
one of the posts and the others would turn
at the same time, being connected by a bicycle
chain. Some woodworkers have made drum
thickness sanders incorporating this sort of
lift concept. I saw one that had a large center
gear that meshed with gears at the 4 corners.

I think lifts used to be made for televisions but
when the flat screens came along the style of
lift changed.
