Building Jumps (and other wooden barn things)

This year, I'm taking a shop class at school. I have permission to build just about anything I want.
I LOVE cross country, jumping out of the ring in general. I've build several jumps put of wooden logs and other fun things.
When they now the grass, they take them apart and move them. These are huge jumps and really heavy. I get tires of having to fix them all the time.

Right now I'm wanting to make a new coop. I won't need help with this one, but I was wondering if you all had any ideas or have seen some other cool jumps?

I'll definitely be making jump standards and saddle racks, so my instructor can have a nice and neat tack room like she deserves!! Haha

Make all of my own jump standards. Easiest things ever. The hardest part was finding a drill wide enough to make holes in the standard. The first one I did was a little crooked, but it's easy to get the hang of! I'll be trying out saddle racks next :)

Look at pinterest searching cross country jumps.

Make yourself a really nice tack trunk. Make jump standards with wings. You can sell them on CL.

I was thinking about making myself a tack trunk, But I already have everything stored in drawers. If I could think of a really awesome layout that I prefer over how I'm organized now, I definitely would.

I agree. They'll all be pretty small ): (we have younger riders and not such athletic horses that want to have fun as well) but I could always add a pole or make a second one, but larger
