A friend was talking about one of these that his father had while he was alive. I found some plans online and made him one out of scraps. The blocks are oak from pallet wood. The arms are scrap Maple at ~ 14” and the 90 degree corners are plywood. 2” and 2 1/2” 1/4” carriage bolts with a 3/8” x 12” threaded rod. It was fun to make and not counting a trip to the store for bolts it took most of the morning with 2 coats of poly to apply. Thanks for taken a look.
Website and plans are:
My 2¢ use a 3/8”x 12” threaded rod not 1/4” x 6” and instead of 14” arms make them 20” to be able to do larger frames. However if you need to you can quickly make the arms longer if you need to later. It’s really easy to make.
