How to make stilts

A bit about the measurements given

Note: The measurements are given in both standard (inches) and metric (millimetres).
The measurements are given in inches first, followed by millimeters in brackets (mm).
The standard (inch) measurements are best suited to North America and the metric (mm) measurements are best suited to Australasia.
The standard (inch) sizes are not an exact match to their equivalent metric (mm) sizes. So use one or the other.

A bit about the wood size

The legs are of 2x2 (50 mm x 50 mm) stock, and the footrests are of 2x4 (50 mm x 100 mm) stock.

2x2 actually finishes at 1-1/2" x 1-1/2", and 2x4 actually finishes at 1-1/2" x 3-1/2".
That is the 'actual' or true size (North America).

And the metric equivalent...

50 mm x 50 mm actually finishes at approximately 45 mm x 45 mm, and 50 mm x 100 mm actually finishes at approximately 45 mm x 90 mm.
That is the 'actual' or true size (Australasia).
