followed the basic plan shortened the foldout arms a bit

I followed the basic outline in the original plan for the main part of the project. I did secure more with some 2x4 I had. I had plenty of 2x4 laying around and felt this would be a good time to use some of it. I shorted the arms a bit. I think mine are 23 1/2in on each side. Still plenty long enough for most projects. I added a small shelf in the middle. I am not thrilled with exactly where I have it. But I have it just floating on the rail so If I want/need to take the shelf out , it is just real easy to do so. I would say just because I was being extra carful with the cuts that it took me about 6 hours in total to complete it.
