• This is a basic three step unit to provide access to a 24” or 32” platform.
  • Step units come in all shapes and sizes.
  • This particular step unit was designed for those who only have access to a circular saw and ¾” plywood.
  • It measures 2’(w) x 2’ 3”(d) x 2’(h). The rise is 8” and the run is 9”. It is made out of ¾” plywood.
  • The unit would typically be attached to the floor and platform with L-brackets or hinges.
  • If the step unit is altered to be wider than 2’, additional support must be added every 16” to 24” under each tread.
  • For maximum strength and stability, use appropriate fasteners and wood glue.
  • Please note that when dimensions of lumber are given, the actual size will be followed by an inch (1”) or foot (1’) mark, while the nominal size will not.
  • Example: Nominal size = 1 x 3 vs Actual size = ¾” x 2 ½” (Learn more here)
  • Always check for square!
