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
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.
