My first question was why do they have 8 holes to attach the platform to the stand but tell me to use just four wood screws? I picked four of the eight holes and started putting them in. I noticed my Phillips screwdriver had a prong broken off but fortunately, I found another one. These things went in very hard and I couldn't get them all the way in. Then I noticed my hand was hurting and sure enough, some skin had torn off right in the middle of my palm. Seriously, who gets hurt using a screwdriver? I couldn't believe it! So, this is how far I got on assembling my lectern until my hand heals or until someone volunteers to do this for me.
My cats were sad they couldn't be of more help. My husband said, they're in good enough but he knows I like to do things right and want things perfect. My friend Sue who owns "Helping Hands" may be getting a call to put this together for me, but I hate to admit I am so screwy challenged. Does anyone else have problems with screws?
