Good point about the shims, Dan. I’ve learned to stop and manage all fasteners, bits and bobs in real time. Where possible, I put bolts, washers, shims and bolts right back in to their receiving piece so they stay where they’re supposed to be. I keep a sharpie in my pocket to mark pieces where needed.

For future readers, another trip… When taking wings and rails off by myself, I get all the bolts/screws free but not loose. Then I remove bolts from the outside in, leaving the center most bolt as last. With wings, taking out the outer bolts lets me pivot the wing to vertical, nice and balanced, the I support the piece and remove the last bolt.

-- But Honey I really *needed* that (saw/plane/chisel...)
