Ping Pong Table Update

Standard

Just in case you all were losing sleep wondering what happened to my ping pong table (ref. my June post: Summer is here!) . . . I am making progress. Life got in the middle of me putting it together, but I’m back on it . . . and now I have my “good gloves”. What a difference good gloves make, on the other hand, who knew you had muscles in your “rear end”. Seriously after the last 60 screws (without the drill) I could hardly walk. I was laughing at myself. Just sitting down at my desk and getting up again has been painful. Hmmmm after I get that ping pong table done I’d better plug in my treadmill.

So after whining about putting in 100 screws by hand (the instructions said NO DRILL), one of my coworkers brought in his DeWalt drill for assistance (thanks Brucey). He set up the “torque” for me (whatever that is) and I was ready to go.  Soooooo why is it that EVERY TIME you have a project it ALWAYS ends up taking twice as long as you thought???? EVERY TIME!! The only pieces I had left were the plastic corners and plastic guards that go around the edges of the table. With DeWalt in for the assist, I was thinking “one hour max” . . . . uhhhh noooooo! None of the manufactured pre-drilled holes lined up with the corners or guards!! Seriously!!! Geeze louise!!! I had to pre-drill new holes before I could put the last 32 screws in . . . 2 hours!!!  To be continued . . .
