Building a table

Post by jason1977 » Wed Apr 25, 2018 1:04 pm

So I will be building a new game table soon. I am thinking about putting some caster wheels on it so I can move it around the basement if I need to. I think however that it may be too high. Does anyone have an a GW table at home from a store that closed? Can you please measure the height of the side rails?

Thanks,

Jason

Hi, I don't have a table to measure, but there are Casters you can get that won't make your table too high.

This one only lifts the table when you want to wheel it around

Or there are side mount casters that would also be low profile. This example doesn't swivel but it might work for you.

I don't know what your table legs look like so I don't know if either of these would work, but I hope it's helpful.

I just subtracted 3" (or whatever it was) from the height of the legs, when I was making my table. My next one will be counter height, so 36 high, plus or minus a little. That would mean 33" legs, 3" for the castors, and then I generally have about a 1" lip around the table.
