DIY Mobile Stage ideas
      26/05/12 01:54 AM
I'm working on a mobile stage as I've been asked to help with several cancer society gigs here in the US, and there's no real affordable staging in the area. Plans are to build enough 4x8 modules for a 24' x 16' stage with an 8' x 8' drum riser. Nothing professional grade, something for smaller festivals and such, and eventually will be adding a canopy to it. Looking at 3/4" sheets of plywood (4' x 8'), 2x4 frame around & across middle, with 2x4 legs (or possibly 2 pieces of 2x4) for 18" stage height, 4" bolts to hold legs vertical & to hold pieces of staging together.

Pictures are below, they are on Facebook but should be visible.

The drum riser will be using 2 2x8's side by side and simply sit on the top. Final stage idea below

This is a budget build, but I still want something functional and nice. And yes, I know about the complaints as far as insurance concerns and liability, I have plans to have that worked out. Just looking for "constructive" criticism (bad pun, lol). Thanks!
