K.Gragera turns a hand-me-down Lade Bed into a stand, fit for champions.
She says, “This Lade Bed had been passed down from one friend to another friend to another friend. Finally it came to rest and my friend decided to recycle the wood and create an award stand for a Jiu-Jitsu Tournament
he was hosting.
The wood was sawed into different heights for the placements. Sheets of plywood were cut and screwed onto the frame. The top part was spray painted black. The graphic on the front was printed on very large
paper and mounted to the stand. 3 friends stood together on each placement to test if the plywood would hold the weight of 3 people.
This award stand was used at the Bay Area Open Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tournament in Berkeley, CA. It withstood the weights of very large muscular men.
