I didn't include instructions for sawing the pieces, only the measurements. Why would I need instructions for sawing?
I also just figured out that it makes a handy foot rest :) Don't use it for standing on though! It could easily break under that kind of pressure.
Square-ish type piece of wood, can be rectangular, not too rectangular though. I used approx. 6 inches by 9 inches (that's 15cm by 23 cm).
Long rectangle pieces of wood. I used 5 inches by 12 inches (13cm by 31cm). DO NOT make it any shorter than 5 inches (13cm) high. If it is, you might not be able to fit your bike valve and pump head under it.
