So I took the platform apart after church to get it ready for paint, and figured I would post more pics. My son and I started staining the boards, then I left it to him to finish. My daughter decided today was a Nanna and Papa day, so she went home with them, or she would have been right out there too!
EDIT- I thought you might like the story behind this. My neighbor (just retired from National Guard, CWO5 ;pilot) Is a "keep everything" kinda guy like me. He asked me if I would plow a ditch for him when I got the 193 mounted back up. I said sure...can I use your welder to build my platform carrier, mine is too light duty for the job. He said sure, plus Ill give you the metal to build it. Long story short, I have $30 in wood, bolts, and clevis pins. the rest was free. I love it when a plan comes together!
