Backyard Jib Ideas?

I have a ramp sitting around in the backyard and am wondering what some good box ideas would be.

Personally, I think a good ol' culvert would be an awesome jib. If you can find an orphan one around town, then you have a sick little jib for free basically.

I used 2x6x10' lumber screwed together on edge to make a base about 10.5 inches wide. Its a bit heavy but I feel that helps keep it in place. Then I ran to Home depot and bought 2 10' pieces of 1x6 vinyl board that I screwed to the top. If you get the vinyl garage door jambs one side has recessed ribs that you could screw into so your screws dont gouge your base. Then I screwed some short 2x10's to the bottom to get it up off the ground. It slides like a dream and I didn't even have to wax it. I know its pretty plain jane but its good practice so I dont eat shit in front of all the young park rats.

Getting an inch of snow is like winning 10 cents in the lottery.

I kinda want to see this! Do you have any pictures of it?


Also I am currently finding something to make a jib rail out of too. Right now in my personal terrain mess I have; two 35 gallon barrels buried to make kickers and one plastic 55 gallon barrel to make a little bigger one.

I've also seen people session small boats. Just flip it upside down.

I've been trying to find one of those big black ribbed tubes. I think they're primarily used for drainage. They would be goot for presses/grinds if you put them length wise down the hill, or great to pop over/tap if you put it horizontally.
