Dude, that's the same thing I was planning on doing. The DW and I both get slivers from the giant 12 x 12 blocks we used on the 4 corners. That's to funny. It's a great idea, and I plan on doing it. I have 1 handle already, just need 3 more, and we'll be G to G.

I reinforced the legs and try to get them at least to 45 or greater. JMO

I agree with OC here. The reason the short legs reduce sway is there is more leg in the support tube to restrict side to side movement. Using a cross brace will accomplish the same thing and they store attached to the legs.

I use railroad tie blocks also. I think they are about 10x12x14" ish. On the rear every time and on the front most times. But I dont stack anything else on them unless it's a 3/4" block for levelin the ft.
