My 35 dollar 10 foot rail

So the rail is 10 feet long and used pressure treated wood so it would last better. Some PVC and screws and there you have it...........not bad, gonna hit it up tonight!! Cost total was 35 dollars........

Good for you bud, not too shabby at all, especially for a 35-dollar homemade rig. Props on the fine work.

I hate those rails. Made 3 myself. shitty. If i ever make another one, its from steel beam welded together. Pvc breaks, is inconsistent and sucks for sliding. Where you screw it to the wood you have a hole, place your board could get stuck. And its easy to break is you land sideways or a little harder then you should. Its funner to make a box because you can use that udhp? i think its called as plastic for the top.... They use it for park boxes.
