All good points.

I wonder about the bolded part, though, mainly from reading Amazon reviews from people who holler because something they bought requires a screwdriver to assemble. We have a pretty complete workshop at home (table saw, radial arm saw, planer, recip saw, angle grinder...) so I try to be careful assuming that anyone has any tools more sophisticated than a bottle opener.

I did like how easy it was to make a rounded water area with Matala, but I've seen people here do some pretty awesome things with eggcrate. I guess I'm lazy.
