What a delight it is to build something and not have to clean or move everything around for every stage of construction. Building this table requires a fairly large jig constructed on saw horses. Last time, I had to tear it down to finish the sawing after the top was constructed. It took up too much room in the garage. This time, I left it up and assembled the entire table on the jig, And, I had leisure of building sub assemblies
Plus, there was plenty of room for the table saw, and all the other assembly chores. Very sweet, indeed.
I've always hated sitting around during the cold/rainy season, not being able to sail much. And no other hobbies. The first one I built took 15 hrs. This one only took 10. Some of the improved timing came from familiarity with the project. But a lot of it came from the fact that I now have a great space to work in and I didn't have to constantly shuffle parts from spot to spot as I opened up a spot on the work bench to work on another sub assembly. With three huge workbenches and plenty of open floor space to work with, doing it was a wet dream come true.
I picked up this yardwork wagon from Home Depot. Boy do the kids love that! It doesn't suck for moving a heavy assed table around the yard, either.
