Nice project. Thanks for sharing! What would change in your design if you were to have a crank that could make the table go from a sit to stand position instead of a folding to non-folding like in your current project? I am interesting in creating a bench that I can crank from sitting on the floor and working to standing up and working (so from say a foot to 4ft)

Hey, thanks! I actually built one of those. I used a trailer Jack from harbor freight with a chain drive that I made to connect each side. I used the Jack and welded it into square tubing to hide it. It came out great. I have a short video of it in action on my Facebook page furniture by Jason
