Per Garage Strength:
Materials: long decking screws, 2 8′ 2×4s, sheet of plywood, thicker piece of wood for plank for feet (or use leftover plywood)
- Cut a piece of plywood at a length of 4′ (this is factory width) and then cut the desired width…we used 31 in.
- Cut an 8′ 2×4 in half so u have 2 4′ pieces.
- Screw the 4′ 2×4 along the 4′ sides of the plywood. Make sure that the 2×4 is upright… screwed on the 2″ side.
- Place the piece of wood used by your feet at the desired angle and then screw it into the upright 2×4s
- Cut a piece of 2×4 to screw to the upright part of the angled plank for stability and strength.
- Repeat on the other side
