Default How did you prepare your shop for your standard build RV-14 wings?

Iím expecting my slow build wing kit this summer and would like see what others found useful. What kind of work surface did you use?

4'X8' assembly table (sturdy enough to support a car!), with a 6"x36"x3/8" recessed back rivet plate.

2'x8' side/work table.

Mobile tool cart.

Overhead air, power, and adjustable light.

...Plus lounge furniture and a TV!

Looks super comfortable, but the carpet will be ruined with metal shavings in one night!

Default Jigs

I know they are not required but jigs made the wings easy. I had two sets so both wings were assembled at the same time. Never had to move them till they were done.

I've been working in there for a year with no issues. I used a very low-pile, loop fiber, commercial carpet. The vacuum gets it clean with no problem.

Now that's a nice set up. I had a garage and was happy with that until a saw this.
