    Rolling Workbench - yes or no?

    I did all mine on casters and have been very happy with the ability to move them around and re-arrange the space for different projects. Sometimes there is some slipping /imbalance on the casters on my wavy concrete pad..but thats the concretes fault-not the casters :) The lift and drop style...

    A "Quiet" vacuum?

    I have a Jet650 CFM collector and find it to be ALOT quieter than my ridgid shopvac. though more expensive than a shop vac-they have been coming down in price ..a 650CFM unit is about $350.

    I've been at it for about a year now-filling out that space under my home. I'm not exactly sure what brought me into it...something tangible for me, compared to the work I do I guess. Thanks for the compliments on the work ! b

    Exposing Ply to the Elements

    Drum sand the edges smooth and apply a marine epoxy. You have to harden that smooshy stuff in between the plys to prevent fast water infiltration and delam from expansion. You may be able to use the marine epoxy directly as the bond layer for any edge strips you may want to attach to the edges...
