I have a 7" diameter 10' long PVC pipe and I want to build a rail. Any good ideas on where I should go from here? I want to build a sturdy rail that I can potentially have for a few years so I can practice in the off season
moderators are the people with green names and you should have posted it either in the build a jib cult ( cults are like groups for specific things) or ski gabber although people would've gotten mad if you posted it in skis gabber.. no problem though.
if I were you I would just build it up on some snow.. I have an 8" 10' long pvc and I just built it into a cannon with some snow
mods are people with green names. they can delete posts, move posts, ban members, and keep the sites content in check.
the sell/trade forum is for people to sell or trade their old ski gear. you're looking for the ski gabber forum (discuss anything skiing related) or a specific forum in a cult like the build-a-jib 101 cult.
and to answer your original question: cut 2 rectangles of plywood with semicircles cut out of it to set the box in. then connect the two and build a frame between them, and you should be able to figure it out from there.

before i could even tell my buddy to get out, he was outside, door open, just firing beer cans into my car. - seward
well, this is something i've done, perhaps you can do it too. find a small ravine or something, put the rail up one hillside, and so you can grind it up and then grind it back down. i also put another rail on the other hillside, and if you do it right, you'll have enough speed for several hits without stopping.
If I were you, I would bury it with snow and just hit it while it's in the ground. If you wanted to try something different, make 2 stands for it, almost like sawhorses, and lay the PVC pipe inbetween them.
