I need to support a 6' span between 2 platforms. They are 2x4 construction w/3/4 ply top. The joint falls in the center. I can use steel angle iron on both top and bottom if needed. The joint will need to support two adults walking across it

Can you provide us a quick sketch of what you want to do? Post an MS paint or other drawing tool to the image host of your choice, and one of us will inline it for you. – Chris Cudmore Mar 20 '13 at 15:30
