Plans for Building a DL Platform?

Anyone know where I could find plans/details on how to build a platform like this? The more detailed the better.

Thanks for the links.

PHGN the link you posted doesn’t work (“account is closed”).

Good luck. They’re pretty easy to build even without plans. All you need is plywood, stall mats, glue and screws and you can make a pretty simple and sturdy space in an hour or so.

Yes, you can get the stall mats at the Tractor Supply store for about $40 for a 4’x6’ section.

Any guess as to the wood used in the pic above?

use standard plywood. 3/4 inch thick. you’re going to need at least 3 sheets to work with to build the basic structure
