How to Build a Level Workbench for a Sloped Floor

How to Build a Level Workbench for a Sloped Floor like a Garage Part 1 : I needed a level adjustable workbench for my CNC and equipment. It has to be strong enough to hold the weight of the CNC and also the computer equipment. And it needs to have a top that can be level adjustable by as much as 1.5 inches over a seven foot distance because my garage floor is sloped. Use these points to jump around within the video
