Features to create a unique back yard park set up
Any ideas on features to put into a backyard that are quick and easy . I read some past threads on backyard set ups but lack some of the tools for a proper build. I have a hand saw, hammer and old wood... that is about all the tools that are at my disposal. I tried to make a rail out of pvc and it is janky as fuck. It is very unstable and with a lot of weight wobbles a lot. I also have an old skate rail that scratches my bases and is slow. Any suggestions.
I go to college in sunny CA and dont have any access to snow.
Getting ready for the season and need to take let lose
literally everything you need to know is right here:
this is the build-a-jib cult. click on join and just look through the threads. it may not be used very often anymore but there's tons of good information. i'd say to start there.
Ill build you a steel rail. Whatever design and specs you want. But I'm in Colorado.
Or find some 6 or 8 inch PVC pipe in schedule 40.
Buy yourself a cheap miter saw if you build things ever. Nobody wants to use a hand saw. I did build a rail with a hand saw like 12 years ago though. Shit sucks.
If you skate and ever want to build a mini or just build anything else for a backyard park like a drop in, other rails it's not bad to have. Being able to do precise angles makes framing rock solid.
As far as building it though, if you're doing a pvc rail build a jib is def the place to go as there are constantly people posting about what they're working on as well as several how to threads.
