Please excuse me if this question is 'too basic, and dumb' for this
group. But I could use some advice..... ;)
I have two dogs that are getting up in years. I would like to build
a simple set of stairs so they can easily get up on their place of honor,
Anyway, the bed is about 26" high. I plan on making the steps about
22" wide, 10"deep and either going two steps @8 1/2" high, or three steps
@6 1/2" high. Haven't decided which way to go. (they are still in good
shape, I'm more concerned about the effect of them jumping down from
that hight day after day onto a hard surface.
I would like advice on what wood to use. The heaviest dog is 70 pounds.
What wood would offer good/safe support for the build. Particle wood is
I imagine a lot cheaper than Ply, and I have to build this cheap.
Thanks for your guidance!
