I was asked to make an easy stage to assemble and store for a school.
This is the result, 3/4’’ plywood 450mm high with 1100mm square top.
All the uprights are identical, so there is no need to number them,
There is also connector pieces tha

t hold the uprights together.
The top has 4 blocks screwed to the underside with a taper to ease between the uprights and help square it up.
Each box section can easily hold the weight of 4 adults.

Thanks Sergio
Before I made the staging, the school was joining tables together and using cable ties to hold in place.
The easy stage disassembles and fits on a wheeled rack taking up a small space.

If you look at the photo of the single upright, notice that the slots are one up and one downward facing.

The holes cut down on weight, but the main reason is that when you go to put the last upright of the 4 per square together,there needs to be some flexibility in the plywood.

The holes allow for just the right movement without compromising on strength.

Wow! Great and cool design and build for a stage. It sure looks sturdy. The good thing is that it can easily be stored when not in use and assembled when needed. I’m sure the school loves it.

Have your say...
