    Place your bets: How long will it take me to build this?

    I make it 10.35 in the morning. It's a Sunday. It's also 2014. Just in case it goes dramatically pear-shaped.




    You know the script.

    Prizes to the nearest completion time.

    Did a metal one of these a few years ago and it was an absolute nightmare doing it on your own. Yours is wooden so will be a bit lighter and easier, but if you're on your own I'm still going to say 2 hours 36 minutes.

    You won't complete it, you'll go to the pub in frustration. When you get home, the missus would have it all done for you...

    It is. Even having a woman or child to hold one end up while you screw in the other, would make a huge difference. On your own they're a pain in the ass.

    6 hours 57 minutes, counting the 3 hours spent in the pub calming down after the first 2 hours of effort.
