  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large 1f8290ba c745 4cbf ad4e c142cfab477e

      STEP 1. Cut three pieces of 2x10 48” long. Cut grooves into the sides with a jig saw that are wide enough for the flange of the angle iron to fit in. Use the grooves on the first 2x10 to mark the locations for the other two pieces of 2x10 so that all the grooves line up.

    2. Step: 2
