DIY Locking Caster Wheel Stand for Table Saw

We are always chin deep in DIY projects around our house – and many of those projects require the use of a table saw. Like many people, our table saw is kept in our garage…and our garage is always so cluttered with kid toys that it makes it impossible to access the table saw fully let alone cut wood without making a huge mess all over the toys. We would always drag it out of to the garage to the driveway = super pain in the butt because it’s heavy and doesn’t “drag” easily.

So…my genius hubby came up with a solution. He’s talked about doing this for years, but like all good ideas, they take forever to actually happen (at least at our house). Until now…

  1. Simple, yet effective. I like it! I’d be a little leery of the brakes suddenly not working though… I guess I’d just have to hope my life isn’t actually like the Final Destination movies 🙂
