Like a glove! You need a big boy level. That thing is pathetic. And was the ground even level where you were leveling?!

My next project I think will be to find a way to get a bunch of my tools off the bottom shelf of mine. Probably set up some pegboard.

I was considering something like that. I have pretty much all my hand tools in the cabinets above the bench.

Are all 4 of your casters swiveling or just one end?

Invest in a rolling tool chest. HF's are solid and go on sale.
(Or have your dad get one at a cheap tool show and gift it to you for your birthday)

Those cabinets are nice. Clean look to keep everything out of sight when you don't need it.

Am not! I really like your bench. I was only kidding about the wheels. I have to have all 4 swivel because of how mine is placed, that obviously isn't a requirement with yours.

My wheels don't even lock in place. I really wasn't thinking that through...

My swivel ones are locking but I wish they locked the swivel part and not just the wheel. It can still move a couple inches back and forth from the swivel, which is kind of annoying but I don't think it will be a real problem.

Right, I think it will only be a problem when I finally mount a vise and need something held on place really solid. I would rig up a way to clip it into the wall if I needed that though.

I have 6 casters on mine and they all swivel. I hate it and will probably remove the middle ones since my workbench isn't perfect and wobbles on the center casters.

I added a 5th middle one to mine after I noticed my bench was bending in the middle. Mine wobbled for a bit but it corrected itself once the wood bent again because of all the weight.

I don't want that much on the bottom shelf of mine so I should be fine without the center ones.

$3 at McNards. Worth it just for the drill to socket adaptors, especially for an impact.
