We decided that when the renovations were over we would get one. We went to that famous Swedish shop that is famous for meatballs as well as flat pack furniture and we found the one we wanted and ordered it online. Yesterday was the day for it to arrive. But then it needed to be assembled. We did the chairs OK yesterday but the table seemed difficult. We decided to leave it till today. Some of the bigger baboons at Baboon HQ set to work this morning.
While Yaya Baboon and I scratched our heads Freddy baboon took the opportunity to pose for a picture. What a lot of pieces.
We realised that we would need to use power tools. I felt that the smaller baboons should stay away at this stage.
WARNING: Power tools can be dangerous and must be handled with care!!
Eventually we managed to assemble it.
Oh dear but Roko Baboon, Yaya Baboon, Denis Baboon, Thierry Baboon and Austin Baboon were puzzled about how to get it upright. In the end we all worked together with help of our humans to get it on its legs.
Oh dear but we seemed to have an extra piece. Yaya and I were worried about this, what can we have missed. Then we realised it was the middle piece that could be used to extent it further.
Once we had fitted the extending piece Freddy Baboon was worried that it was too long. Well he wasn't really he just likes to get into a picture. We soon found that you can store the extending piece under the rest and we slid that into place.
Edward Baboon, Marley Baboon and I decided that we needed to try it out. We decided we might need some cushion pads for the chairs and the boys are a little bit low here, but that will be easy to get.
Once we had got our table covering on it all fitted fine and looked nice. I will look for another stool like mine for the the other end, get a new table cover and some sushion pads and then it will all be done.
