Instructions – Steps 1 to 2:
Step 1. Cut the pieces
For each set of stilts:
• Out of 2x2s (50 mm x 50 mm) stock, cut two pieces @ 75″ (1905 mm) long
• Out of 2x4s (50 mm x 100 mm) stock, cut two pieces @ 7″ (178 mm) long.
Step 2. Measure, mark, and drill the leg holes
Mark for the holes in the legs. Measure and mark up the middle of the legs (on both sides) from the bottom, every 4″ (100 mm) up to 32′ (800mm) as shown on the drawing below.
Mark the center of the holes (in order to start the drill bit) with a nail punch or a center punch on both sides of the legs.
Drill 1/2″ (12 mm) holes through the legs where marked. If you are not using a drill press, drill halfway through from each side to ensure the holes are in the middle on both sides.
The diameter of the holes are bigger than the thickness of the bolts to allow for easy placement.
