If you are going to build this dairy goat milking stand, please read the entire instructions prior to purchasing and cutting any wood.

Here's a list of what you will need:

2 - 2X4X8

4 - 1X4X8

35 1/4 X 18 1/4 piece of wood for platform.  I used plywood 3/4" thick

Measuring tape


The plans called for a jigsaw but I used a circular saw.  It's just faster but either will work

Wood screws (some at least 1 1/2 " and some 3") The plan called for 1 to 2 inch  screws and 3  to 3 1/2" screws, but the 1 inch are too short and the 3 1/2" are too long, so go with 1 1/2" and 3" and you will save yourself some heartache.

Some clamps help too if you are working on this alone.
