Kit Airplane: Airframe Ordered & Work Bench

The full CH-650 airframe kit has been ordered! It should be delivered around April 2024, so I'm working hard to finish as many other projects as possible before it arrives.

I need a large work table to assembly the parts, and Zenith recommends a size of 12'x4' for it. A few 2x8s, 4x4s, 3/4" plywood, and a helper puppy...

My original plan was 6 legs and additional cross bracing lower down, but I think 4 without bracing will work out. It's pretty darn sturdy with three 2x8s spanning the full length.
