I am a beginner in the process of building my first workbench. I could use some input on whether it would be a good idea or not, to put wheels on a workbench. I have yet to see wheels on any workbench. I plan to build a bench like the one in the Dec 99 FWW article in the same approximate dimensions, and would like to put 4 or 5 inch castors on it, 2 fixed and 2 with swivels and locks. I have not seen any discussion on this particular bench, so I would welcome any comments on this item. Also what are the disadvantages of a workbench being too high? The reason I ask is that bending over really bothers my 53 year old back. I'm 6'1" and plan to build a 40" high bench. Thanks in advance, this site is a blessing for a beginner with no mentors.
