    Can I suggest rather than having one end narrower than the other, just off set the legs as it will be much sturdier in the long run. :thumbup:

    Sounds easier to implement as well. The only benefit of the other is putting the narrow legs in the centre of the connections (two boards = one section). But still, agree as above. Thanks Gary! Maybe this weekend I can get the first set knocked up.

    1200mm long by 400mm wide, two boards fit together to form a section, so 2400mm by 400mm when connected together

    *cough cough* It's a little dusty in here.

    Sorry for the necro-revival. Time to get this back on track.

    Hi All, long story but I'm back and am looking at getting some progress going on these planks. I moved to Melb 5 years ago and learnt that that was 5 years I'll never get back plus some more debt to pay off.

    I have two of the planks in the shed, mostly stable and ready for work. 4 more somewhere in storage that I'll dig out. Several of the new ARM 38s ready and a huge mess of everything modelling or craft related.

    Hope to catch up with you all soon.

    It's great to be back, cheers,
    Aaron (Veers)
