Step 1: Supplies Needed:
2 = 4x4x8
4 = 8' decking boards
4 = 6" galvanized bolts
2 = 4" eye bolts
3" long screws
Tools I used:
Step 2: Step 1: Base & Vertical Posts
Cut the two 4x4x8 into 4'6" lengths. The remaining length will be used for the feet.
I used 3" hinges to attach them (when I was trying to make it portable). You don't need to do this, but the hinges do help with holding it in place.
Step 3: Step 2 -- Angled Supports
The length is flexible but I set mine 3' in from the end (which also went 3' up on the vertical posts).
I screwed them in on each side, made sure they were square, & then drilled the hole for the bolt.
Step 4: Step 3: Feet
Step 5: Step 4: End Braces
I just measured from the end of the feet at a 45° angle and cut the pieces to match.
*THE REALLY IMPORTANT THING HERE IS TO MAKE SURE YOUR VERTICAL POSTS ARE SQUARE WITH THE FEET & BASE, BEFORE SCREWING YOUR BRACES IN!!
**once these are screwed in I would suggest laying the stand on its side and screwing the feet to the base from the bottom with several screws; so they don't slide when moving the stand.
Step 6: Step 5: Eye Bolts
Just center them on the vertical posts near the top and you're good to go
