I'm building a HUGE box. 12 ft long 4 feet wide, with a 2ft mini quater? (sort of) on the side.

So far,
-my plywood's free
-2 pieces of coping were free, need to buy a third, unless I can find one!
-17 2x4x12's for $17.... Mad deal!
- self driving wood screws, $16 for 150? count.

Have made the box frame so far. looking for a counter top surface for the top. No way in fuck do I wanna spend the money for the good shit.
Far too big for that.

Once I get the top surface and last peice of coping I should be able to put er all together and have a fucking sweet setup.

With this box I'm going to make my flat 8' round rail, a 20 foot rail to hubba.

My up-rail will have the quater on the box for a landing like a hip.

And I should have enough surface of the top to learn watever the fuck I want.

Pretty stoked, cant wait to have it all together and in place for the snow.



^ that should be the gerneral look of the face when its done, stretching 12 feet. Box on top of box, I got so many lines in my head.

Not a box but if you can get some standard hand rail tube. Two bends and you have yourself a rail. Its pretty cheap as well. Got some thats galvinized (spelling?) so it won't rust.

good place to get HDPE or UHMW sheeting is usplastics.com
you should be able to get the plastic and other box materials for under $150 depending on how big your box is

i covered a 12' by 1' and a 8' by 1' box with HDPE for like $90 i think

if your looking for other ideas check out my backyard park

well the sheets come in 2' by 4' pieces i got the stuff that is 3/8" thick

it looks like HDPE is $39.55 a sheet High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Sheeting | U.S. Plastic Corp.
and UHMW is $121.31 a sheet UHMW Cut Sheet | U.S. Plastic Corp.


shipping isn't that bad either
