My recommendation is rather simple. but does require hardware. Four two
inch utility hinges, one with the pin removed. Cut four board of equal length.
Arrange boards thusly
By placing a hinge on the outside of each over lap, you can remove one
hinge pin and the whole thing will fold flat for transport. It should look like
While I personally would use 3 inch door hinges, two inch utility ones
should work. I would opt for the 3 inch ones though and grab the lumber from the
Cull lumber bin at Home Depot. At 51 cents for a 4 ft piece of wood, it's the
best bargain out there. I'd grab some 1x4 or 1x6 stock and slap it together from
that. If you really want to minimize the required woodworking skill, buy a full
length board at HD or Lowes and have them cut it to length. Then all you have to
be able to do is use a screw driver. Beside being sturdier, a 1x6 can be cut on
an angle with a jigsaw or into an decorative shape for a fancier look. HMMMM,
maybe I should make a few for my webpage.
Just my 2 cents worth
