This table has a history. It was custom crafted by a local maker many years ago who seemed to have a good reputation regarding his craftsmanship. Unfortunately, it was clear when the table was delivered, his "craftsmanship" left much to be desired. The tabletop was a beauty, but the legs and the way they were attached, left the table feeling wobbly and difficult to move.
Steph lived with it for a while, but finally got fed up. That's when we added metal sawhorse legs. Although that solution looked really good, those legs also proved to be a problem as well.
Finally, we had a "duh" moment and came up with this solution!
We've had lots of experience with these Husky work tables. When we remodeled the garage, we got three of them. Personally I thought Steph was crazy for getting so many, BUT, after using ALL of them at the same time, I've told her on many occasions, that her instincts were correct. Three was not too many.
These tables come in black and white, different sizes, and optional built-in drawers. Steph uses this one in the Lego room and I recently bought one for my sewing/craft room. Using a table to cut patterns was proving to be too fatiguing for my lower back so having an adjustable table to do crafts has been a back saver!
It's surprising to both Steph and I that it took so long to discover this solution that was basically right in front of us! We love being able to move this table and the functionality of being able to raise or lower it.
