How to Build a Basic Platform

What you will need:
2 pieces of 3/4" plywood. 
1 piece of 1/2" plywood. 
2 pieces of 4x6'x1/2" rubber mat. 
1" screws
1-Lay 2- pieces of 3/4" plywood sidewise. 
2-Screw the 1/2" plywood in the center on top of the 3/4" plywood. 
3-you now will have a space along the sides for the 1/2" rubber mat. Install the mat by cutting it to size. Make sure the screws are not where the weights will land. 

Note: if using a junior or female bar you will need to make the center plywood 3' wide and the rubber mats 30" wide on the side.
