Yesterday I did some shopping at McClendons for some hardware and at Home Depot for some plywood, OSB and plumbing pipe to make a couple Computrainer platforms. I have ordered another CT and with two of them side by side it seemed appropriate to make nice platforms for them. I got two sheets of 3/4 inch...well, actually 23/32's CDX plywood and 2 more 3/4" OSB tongue and groove...which is much heavier, but cheaper than the plywood. The OSB was $13 something and the plywood was $31 something. Spendy. The platforms are 6 feet long, 36" wide at the base where the CT will go and then at 24" forward from the base it tapers to 18" at the very front. I put the plywood on top and the OSB on the bottom and used the cut off pieces from each to make a third layer I sandwiched in the middle. The hardware was T-nuts and leveling feet, 6 of each per platform. The platforms are cut and painted with a single coat, so far, of battleship grey paint and the leveling feet are in place. After we swim in the morning I will go to HD and get some 2 1/2" trim board to make the edges neat, put on another coat of paint, put on some triathlon and CF stickers and then put on a coat or two or six of polyurathane and then put on the CT and the plumbing pipe post that will hold the CT control head. Pics later.
