I finished this up most of the way a few weeks ago and finally had the chance to put everything together and make sure it fits. Well I’m happy to say it did.

The directions I used were on the web here and I will say he did a great job making it very simple to use and store. I don’t do a lot of power tool projects and borrowed a friends router. Amazing tool that thing is! ;-0

Although it’s mostly made of class B cabinet plywood the pig tail rail is made from some salvage 300+ year old yellow pine I got in Phily. The lap joints are also cut by hand. Everything is screwed together with inserts and 1/8 hex head bolts. As they say some assembly required but when all done it will store flat.

The final size was 46X46X18. They will use a piece of linoleum flooring and blankets for the floor.
