Well, like many of us hobbyists, I've dreamed of actually selling something I've built rather than give it away to friends or relatives. For me that day has finally come... and I'm scared to death!
A visiting pastor to our church more than a year ago loved the furniture I built for our chancel and contacted me asking for a quote to build new chancel furniture for his church. A couple of estimates later, and a lot of waiting, I received word that they want me to send them a contract and begin work - with a delivery date 3 months from now. Ooops. For some reason I never thought they would go through with it! Now what'll I do!
May I assume that I can depend on all of you for guidance when I run into problems that have me stumped? Good! Here's the first problem.
Here are the designs that they have provided.

In looking at these, and knowing I have to deliver them several hundred miles away, I'm thinking I can make good use of torsion boxes and build it to be easily disassembled. This will allow me to fit the entire set in one pick-up truck load and keep the weight down. Sound like a good idea?
BTW, flat sawn white oak and white oak ply are the materials of choice and I'm not applying a finish - they want to do that themselves.
Now, can I do this and the new floor?
