Backyard Park Concerns
I put this subject under Boards because I was unsure where else to put it. It also fits this topic the best because it I am worried about the condition of my board and if it will get damaged by the rails.
My friend has a pretty badass front yard. Since he lives on a lake, he has a huge hill that goes down his front yard. This year we decided to build a park in his yard to have somewhere to mess around when we don't feel like spending the cash or taking the trip to a real mountain. We built some wooden square rails and wooden boxes. We also built some rails out of some PVC pipe. All of this stuff was just found around his house, and the wood is old and I'm not sure of their measurements but I don't think that measurements will be needed for my question.
The wood is old, and a little banged up. It was apart of his old pier so I would assume that the wood was treated for the water and weather. It's been sitting outside for the last few years in the same place and we just picked it up. The surface feels pretty smooth, it is splintered here and there so I'm wondering if that will be a problem. Not majored splintered but some chips here and there. The edges are don't appear to be sharp or anything, but they are splintered too. Some of the wood has chips in it and holes so I'm worried that those might hurt the board.
Will the wood be bad for my board? Are the grinds going to hurt my board in any way? Is there anything that I can do to make it safer such as sanding it?
I am also wondering if I should go ahead and buy from skateboard square rails and round rails and put them in the snow.. I'm afraid that they might be too short though. Most are 6 feet or 7 feet but I'm not sure if it's worth the investment or if my wooden ones will be just fine.
My price range for this all is around $100 if anyone has suggestions.
