TV Tables - Packaging

The polyurethane skim coat has set up nice and hard, so I crawl up in the loft
of the lumber shed and pull down a TV Table box and a half sheet of Styrofoam.
I fold the box out and tape up the bottom.

From Styrofoam scraps I cut the pads needed to keep the two tray tables
from clacking together while in transit and place them on the first table.
Then lay the second table in place and use stretch wrap
to strap them securely together.

I add padding to the arms of the stand, place the table pack
on the stand and strap them securely together.
I cut the Styrofoam panels for the bottom of the box and both ends. 
Because there is no second set of tables on the back side of the stand,
I use a large block of packing foam to hold the packaged tables up in
position when laid in the box.
I add shredded paper packed in along the sides and the other sheet of Styrofoam on top and seal the carton up.

Then it’s off to the office where I use the computer to process the shipment
 on-line, print the shipping label and schedule a pick-up for tomorrow.

This one is done and ready to roll.

I also packaged and shipped and order from On-Hand stock for Robert. 

To build Shelly’s tables I will need to pull more walnut, bring it in and let it acclimate to the warmer, drier atmosphere inside the shop.  While it is doing that I will go ahead and finish up David’s trunk.  It’s almost done, but I’ll start a new post to get into that.

Thanks for following along!  Feel free to leave a comment below!
