Decided to make a work platform for forks out of 2 X 4's and a sheet of 5/8" plywood.
Yes I understand this is a *no-no* safety wise, but intend on going no higher than 5 feet.
Figure that's safer than me on a ladder with a pole saw.
Used Valspar sealer/stain instead of paint on wood, 2 coats on all wood, 3 coats on plywood edges.
All connections use snap lock pins, no tools needed.
Plywood comes off of frame easily 4 hand tight 5/8" bolts, plywood weighs around 50 LBS, frame weighs approx. 50 LBS,
each manageable separately by me.
Total cost approx. $110.
