    That's what I was asking :) Thanks... I noticed the pilot holes for the screws... Did you glue this together at all?

    It's big benchwork 10'x12'?... how heavy is it? How far will it be moving from it's present location to the actual train room?

    Didn't use any glue on it, but I did use a clamp to assist me in holding the angled portions tight together while I screwed the screws in.

    As it is, it's not too heavy. I can easily pick up each section on my own. When I get plywood and backdrop on it then it will be considerably heavier, but light or heavy it would still required two people to get each section in the house because of the size. Even if it were REALLY heavy it wouldn't have to go very far....maybe 30 feet or so.

    The overall layout size is 10' x 12', made up of two modules 10' feet long. If looking at the layout in the picture above, there is a horizontal joint two feet down from the "north". You can see the joint if you go to the Construction Has Begun thread.
