Hey, I talked a lot last season asking for advice about my backyard terrain park plans. Well, the first jib got built, and there is a couple more in the making. But over a 100$ worth of HDPE, so pretty stoked about that. Anyway, here's the rail.








It's about 3 1/2" wide on the top. When we were building it the braces looked like if you fell off your board might catch them and you would go flying, so we put a sheet of plywood over them and we are going to put like 20 coats of ultra glossy polyurethane on it too slicken it up. Should be pretty fun. Cost close to 90$ to build.

Ha, looks like a perfectly crafted xc training obstacle! (I've no clue of rails, but it looks very solid.)

Well done :thumbsup:

Nice I like it HDPE would be better but so understand on cost savings.

Careful the snow will reek havoc on that particle board you used for the sides, just to let you know. It'll probably make this year but will need replacing for next season.

Think you did a great job


Sorry I hate links:

Hey thanks! I completely understand the whole link thing, but I'm not sure how to do it like you did. Mind telling me? Thanks! Do you mean HDPE for the top of the rail or the sides? (100th post yay!) And its actually plywood, not particle board. And that's one of the reasons I'm putting the Polyurethane coating on the side.

Sorry I didn't know it was plywood, good choice of materials :thumbsup:

Copy the source of your pic: IE: www.bigpic.com/jib and then click he the button that looks like mountains
and paste that into the dialog box and it will put pic in the message
You can go in and edit your post to post the pics in the thread by doing this or maybe a mod can fix it too
