Needs more photos, man. The instructions are nice, but dayum, they're hard to follow. Anybody have photographs of the ends of this thing? Stacking up the notched bits is hard to figure from the description in the instructions.

Kbasa's buddy (and fellow assembler) here. We got it together, but the instructions could definitely be a bit clearer, and an exploded view would help. I'll see about throwing something together - anyone handy with a CAD program that wouldn't mind translating a few (detailed, but hand-drawn) schematics into a more Saturday-ready project file?

Let me know if you guys come up with anything, I can help out with making some drawings.

It's designed by engineers, the assembly is someone else's problem

Yes, usually QA to translate it into something that can actually be made.

I'd love to have some good drawings and/or an exploded view. If I can decipher the text and current drawings I have SolidWorks and AutoCAD if mjydrafter doesn't have time.

That looks like a good weekend project, though as others have said better drawings would help.

We're going to build another one around the holidays, I think. After we've made all the cuts, we'll lay the bits out to show what goes with what. We should also take some detail pictures that show what parts go where.

I think that if we laid out all the subassemblies and photographed them as we put them together, that'd be a huge help.

tellec has some pictures of the completed structure, both retracted and extended.

Oh: the document for the cuts is pretty nice and the layout drawings are pretty well done.

Takes down to flat for storage if you don't need to use it.

We got the stuff to make two, but building the first one took hella long. I've already got a lift and now he does, too.

Having a folding one will be pretty cool.
