when the parts did not just
float out of the box and
assemble themselves to
royalty-free ♫ accompaniment

deck atop 6-foot ladder
also, i did not notice it raining
in the video. oh well, it came
together pretty tight in the end
a mere 7 hours later.

and it will then come effortlessly.
it's as zen as it gets when the tool
becomes an extension of your hand.
