I live in AK and bought them


I live in AK and bought them at AIH (AK Industrial Hardware). They were steel and I spray painted them black for my table. You can find them all over the internet if you search for "casters" or "industrial casters". Depending on where you're located the shipping might be pricey because they are super heavy.

caster size

The table looks great! I've been contemplating building this, but it seems like it will be too low. What size casters did you use, and what is the overall height of the table? Do you find it to be a good height?

Thanks! I used 6" casters

Thanks! I used 6" casters since they were the largest I could find without ordering online. It is fairly low with overall height being 14" but when you sit on the couch you can still prop your feet up on it comfortably and the kids can still sit with their legs under it while doing homework. I also used 1x8's for the end and side pieces instead of 1x6's which I think Ana calls for in her plans so that gave it a few more inches in height.
