Exclamation Homemade Jumps?

G'day,

I wasn't sure where to put this thread but anyway.

I was wondering if any of you had made your own jumps? And if you have could you give the measurements?

I would like to have ago at making them but Dad said he needs the measurements before he lets me use his timber and what tools and nails bolts ect, .

While they aren't quite large enough for the jump cups, what I love to use are those corner railing posts for deck fencing since they come with shaped tops. Looks better than a 4x4. They are only about 3' high, but if you're jumping low, who cares. I use 2x6's for the feet cut to 18" each and use deck screws to fasten them to the post. Drill holes for jump cups, that's it. Dirt cheap and work great.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
