  1. Love all of these

  2. Can you tell me what the load capacity is for the simple workbench plans? I am building this to hold a commercial printer that weighs 336 lbs. It will be positioned evenly.

    I do plan to use carriage bolts to bolt B and C to A.

    Thanks

  3. How do you cut the notch that is 3 1/2” from the end of the 2 x4?

  4. what size locking casters do you recommend for the simple workbench?
