Last Thursday I put the finishing touches on my new workbench, just in time for a Friday-morning photo session. The plan was to shoot on location, and editor Christopher Schwarz and I were discussing the plan. The one item not resolved was actually moving the bench from our shop to another shop with a more photogenic parking lot. Chris proposed moving the bench completely assembled, and I said “why don’t we just take it apart and move the pieces? I think that will be easier.”

His response was, “that will take 45 minutes or an hour; it will be quicker to just throw it in the truck.” Never afraid to disagree with the boss, I said “It won’t take that long, this will come apart in 10 or 15 minutes, and we won’t need more than two people to carry the parts.” We went back  and forth for a few minutes. “No you can’t,” “Yes I can” led to “No way,” “Absolutely.”
