When shoppers come to us for furniture parts, it’s for many different reasons. We work with people from different industries and backgrounds; from architects to restaurant owners, DIY’ers to individuals just looking for a particular item. Our favorite calls are about people looking to use a table leg or two for a cool DIY project.
From increased mobility to purely an aesthetic choice; picking the right caster for your table leg matters. Choosing to use a caster is only the first step, there are many factors that go into choosing the right caster for your furniture. The first, basic decision in choosing the right caster is deciding between stem mounted and plate mounted. Stem mounted casters work specifically with table legs and other furniture pieces that accept the stem. These are easier to install if they match up properly. Plate mounted casters can be bolted or welded underneath any type of furniture. They also offer a more stable mounting base than a stem caster.
I know what you’re thinking, “What is so special about a guy that made a wooden car?” Well, this isn’t anything like the toy cars you played with as a kid. This is actually a small subcompact-sized car that can carry up to four passengers, and runs on electricity. It might look like a powerwheel, but I’d advise you not to build one for your five year old, as it is speedy and lacks basic safety features (not to mention the large fire hazard a wooden car carries).
