Knowing that there is a thread somewhere here about adding mobility to tts, I searched for over 1 1/2 hrs this am to find it and never did, so am starting this one for HELP.

Purchased two 2' x 4' cedar tts from HD, but each is only 30" tall so yes, I can add cinder blocks, under the legs to raise them. I would like them to be moveable so bought some 5" dia wheels.Adding wheels to table top beds 5e354305-d721-40ef-b581-3429255aae7b_300

My question is what is the best way to add these wheels?

1) to a piece of thick plywood with a lip on the perimeter of the plywood to keep the tt from slipping off
2) or a support made of 2 x 4s that would support the legs of the tt as well as the wheels.  The 2 x 4s would be assembled into a rectangle, a bit wider than where the tt legs are, suspect that this simple frame would need braces.

Any ideas or experience in adding wheels?

Judy - I talked to ML (aka Mr. Gadget Guy) about this.  He recommends a solid platform of 3/4" -1" plywood with 2x4's around the bottom perimeter of the plywood.  Then attach the wheels directly to the 2x4's.

Not sure if you really need a lip.  He doesn't do that with his roll-arounds. 

He also says that you might consider a couple of wheels in the middle as well, depending on how heavy the box is.
