Step 1: Getting Parts

First thing we did was find 4 planks of wood 100 inch long x 8 inch wide x 3 inch thick

Step 2: Cutting

We then marked the middle of the plank all the way down and cut all the planks straight down the middle with a jigsaw. 1. Leave one plank just cut down the middle. 2. Cut the second down the middle and cut into 25inch lengths. 3. This should result in eight 25 inch planks.

Step 3: Making the Base

We then took the two long planks and put 2 of the 25 inch planks on each end and screwed them together. We then put another 25 inch plank in the middle for extra support.

Step 4: Making the Top

Next we got the other two long planks and did the same as the base but this time there is eight planks in between. We measured of equal distances of 14.3 inches and screwed the planks in place.

Step 5: The Supports

We cut up the remaining planks in to 22cm blocks. We then screwed these to the top by drilling the screws in diagonally.

Step 6: Assembling the Frame

We then put the base on top of the screwed on supports and then screwed the other side of the supports to the bottom side. Finish it up and turn it back over.
