DIY jumping wings - Has anybody made some???

Has anybody made up a set of jump wings before, they are so expensive and ill be wanting a fair few of them for the paddock, so hoping that somebody will have made some.
I have the poles... they are even beautifully painted my moi, but that's as far as I got.
Wanting either metal ones(like the good ones) or just wooden ones for a start. Does anybody have DIY instructions for making them or even pictures of the ones you have made would be great oh and have got welders and carpenters in the family so the making of them is no issue. Just thought it would be easier with instructions.
Also info on making the cups up would be great

I made all my own wings.

Treated pine pole, make a crows foot on the bottom with other timber and then nail cups (i just used short lengths of timber) at regular intervals. They have been known to fall over when not in use, but the jumping pole holds them upright.

If need be I can draw you a diagram.

These jump wings cost me about $5 each, + time to make.
