I was glad my Dad made all his kids take woodworking in school. I had the table assembled in 30 minutes, then it came time to attach the top. That took another 30 mins for that one step. It seems I cannot stand on my head or lean sideways and I cannot screw upside down. So you may think about attaching the openers to the top first instead of how they have it in the instructions. You will have more room to screw in the screws by acting like you have it opened and propped up on something.
