Building Tips: How to Make Simple Legs for your Block Platform

Here’s an easy way to build legs for your Block Platform:

  1. Stack two 2×2 bricks
  2. Place a 2×4 brick on top of the stack as shown in photo 1 below:

  3. Repeat three times so there are four legs in total.
  4. Attach the legs to the underside of the Block Platform as shown in photo 2 below. Important: Make sure a support edge or “lip” is created under the male and female track connectors as shown in photo 2, 3 and 4 below – those lips are going hold up the wooden tracks.
