I am in the process of getting a spare room ready for an O-gauge whole room layout. I am looking at getting the benchwork from Mianne. Does anyone have any experience with this product? I like the idea that you can take it apart easily and move it when the time arrives. Any other suggestions that would be helpful?

I have no experience with Mianne. I seem to recall it took John a while to get his Mianne benchwork made and delivered.

I used 2 X 4s for mine. Do you have a table saw? If I had it to do over again, I would use L-Girders. I did make up some C-Channels for my staging area and they seem to work well.

If time and money are no object, then it is definitely a nice solution.

With just a little advanced planning on your part, though, any benchwork can be made to break down and reassemble easily. Just use carriage bolts and wing nuts in your assembly instead of glue and wood screws. If you already have some basic woodworking tools, it's not hard to do.

You can also look at Sievers, who make a similar product: http://www.sieversbenchwork.com/

Sectional benchwork

I'm not familiar with the Mianne benchwork, but if it consists of sections or "modules" that can be unbolted from each other and moved, then I think it's a good idea. I am a big fan of sectional construction.
