Enter stage right

Here’s a fun project I had recently.

I was asked to make some steps to use with a stage.  Something like an ‘apple box’ as used in film and photography. Needed to be sturdy but light and easy to move. Requested dimensions 12 x 12 x 24.

This was pretty simple and quick, didn’t need any plans.

Started with 3 pine planks 48 inches long and 11 1/4 wide. Cut 2 in half and one in quarters.

Cut boards - hand holds with hole saw

Used a hole saw to make hand holds.

Glued together first.

One more support bar and can be used as additional handle.

Final support will be to countersink some screws but these were amazingly stable with just the glue and finishing nails!
