    Are you planning to weld the casters to the structure? If so, what if they need to be replaced for some reason?

    Btw, spend the extra money so that all four casters are swivelling and locking. It makes it a lot easier to roll the thing into a tight corner, etc.

    MMW, thats exactly what I was thinking.

    fjk, at first I thought about welding them on, but I may do height adjustable for uneven floors. I am for sure using all 4 swivel, not sure about lock yet.

    I just did a rather large post with a bunch of pictures over on Hobart's Weld Talk.

    Here is the link to check it out!

    Looks like it worked out fine. Grinding sparks flying towards cardboard is never a good idea.

    Looks good. You should look into getting at least a welding curtain to stop most of the sparks or clean out a lot of the flammables. Where's the middle shelves?

    Yeah I probably will, just not enough time or money recently. I have yet to put the middle shelf in, however when we cut the bed frame apart, we cut the four uppers out of the same frame and they have slots at the exact same height, so no drilling required! I will probably just use some 1/2" plywood seeing as I have tons of that around.
