Assembly Required...Yikes!

 I can hardly wait to 'Learn to Spin' on my new Ashford Traveler Spinning Wheel...but first....

....I had to seal all the unfinished wood pieces.   I must admit, it was a bit of a surprise to open the box and find so many pieces unassembled.  Yikes, I hope I don't have any parts missing or worse yet have any left over.
From the looks of that wheel, I'm debating if I should hoist the main sail or play wheel of fortune.  I may have to set sail to New Zealand before all is said and done.  Now that's a thought!!
Already, I'm probably out of my element...they are talking RATIOS...#24.  Thank goodness for the big 'X' for wrooong!  I am sorta okay with some of the terminology since I learned in one of my two lessons what a 'lazy kate' is.  It's a thingy that holds spools.  There are 4 of them, and I'm not sure what they are for yet, but I hope to find out in lesson three. 
You know what is really scary in this one of a zillion pages of assembly instructions? 
The Hammer!

when in doubt, get a bigger hammer. Good luck. That looks daunting

Good luck! At least it is written in English.
