    Just for kicks, I asked my six year old son if he could be my roadie and carry my 212 cabinet.

    I did not think he would be up for the challenge, but he sure was, and had no problem lugging it around, even with the extra weight of the cover on it!

    His twin sister can also carry it, so I guess that means I have three super twins!

    It does have them, but that takes out all the fun!

    Lol
    That's pretty light.

    I'm sure even with all these light 2x12s
    Somewhere in the world someone has complained that a 2x12 is too heavy.

    Agreed the tallish form factor is just enough to where castors would be nice as well.

    One lift to load in and out.

    The rest is a roll away and no Carry

    I thought free labor was THE reason we had kids.

    Get out there and mow the grass! And no pay either!

  12. Cute but potentially dangerously bad habit forming there. I know the cab is super light but it looks like he could well be lifting without his shoulders held together by muscles. In other words tendon and muscle are at a stretch which is like a length of rope with ligaments for backup. That's a very good way to wrench your upper back.

    Wow, OK - thanks for the alert! We won't be doing that again.
    He can do 7 one-handed push-ups, which is about 4 more than dad can do at this point. No one-handed pull-ups yet, though.
