Worked on the platform feet today. First I tried 6 1/2 inches tall with rubber sole and old pair of boots attached. The platform material is vinyl molding that is one inch thick, 3 1/2 inches wide and cut into ten inch pieces stacked. The first attempt was very unstable and difficult to walk around in.
Tore apart both platform feet and tried a wider vinyl piece for the base, 5 1/2 inches wide at base. Worked much better. Thank you Jacob for the suggestion. Thank you Panther for the suggestion to directly screw the boots onto the platform material. Both suggestions worked great. Wore the feet around the house for about 15 minutes, stairs were no problem. Next is to attach outer plastic covers for a finished look.
