Concert stage sizes and heights vary, depending on how big the band is, how much equipment they need and how many people will attend. Here's how to build modular stage elements that meet your specifications. For a large audience, a higher stage will allow a better view of the performers. For the purposes of illustration, we'll assume you want a stage that is 32 feet wide, 16 feet deep and 36 inches high. Build your first stage module. Lay out a piece of 4-by-8 foot plywood and attach 2-by-4 boards to the bottom as illustrated in the diagram.
Building a stage can provide a great addition to a playroom, or provide an elevated platform for a performance. By combining multiple stage platforms, you can build a stage in any shape or size you desire. Using a few basic tools and some lumber from your local home improvement store, it is possible to create a sturdy stage that will last for years. You will probably paint your stage eventually anyway, and color is not a good indicator of wood health or strength. Consider other elements of the wood first!
