The plans for this came from Wood magazine’s contractor series. I like them as they are well design and strong. Pretty much followed the plans until I got to the rear of the lowboy. They called for two 1/4” square pieces to be end glued to the trailer for mudflap hangers and tail lights. I left them off at first because they would have been knocked of almost immediately. I got everything together then didn’t like the way the rear of the trailer looked. I routed three 3/8” grooves across the rear of the trailer and glued in three 3/8” square bars that gave it a true lowboy look and will be able to support loads on the rear of the trailer. these are made from maple and walnut with a lacquer finish.
They have been a hit.
