12′ Cherry Conference room table – delivered

No rain today, so I packed up the table into my old Dodge and headed to church.

All packed up

I took my older son and put him and Father Jason to work, helping me haul all the pieces of the table down to the conference room.

I screwed the top beams into place while the guys brought down the other top.

Then I proceeded to screw down the other side.



With both sides fixed into place, I tried to get Father Jason to do a full load test, but he only leaned on the top.

Everything went together smoothly with no surprises.

It is out of my hands now. The table looks lonely without any chairs, but as far as I know, that is not my problem…

On to the next project…
