Default RE: Building Giant scale Question

But do pick up a solid core door rather than a hollow core. It will stay flat longer and absorb much more abuse. The center of a hollow core door tends to sag under loads. If you have room, put it in the middle of your shop so you can work around it and shim it level. Working on a large model up against a wall is a PIA. With the island table, you can work on both sides. And it is easier to assemble and trammel the plane when time comes for final assembly.
