Metaphysical Movers

In case the BQE isn't tight enough for you
Everybody's good at something. This moving company specializes in dissembling furniture to get it into tight places. A fine occupation. In Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman, Policeman MacCruiskeen, as a hobby, fashions a series of ornate wooden chests, each new one small enough to fit within the last one. As he goes on, he requires instruments increasingly small (decreasingly large?), until he is working with ones so small they are literally invisible.

These might be just the guys I need to deconstruct that war-surplus Libyan squash court I bought on line and reconstruct it in my basement storage  bin. (Here's a couple minutes of Ramy Ashour and Ryan Cuskelly from a Tournament of Champions match, now on, at Grand Central. NB: One of these players is not your BTB correspondent. And neither is the other.)
