Cavaletti Ideas??

Hey all --

So I'm trying to make some cavaletti pole holders for our training, I already have the poles. I'm either making it out of wood, or cardboard. I know, cardboard sounds flimsy and cheap but it has worked for me for similar projects in the past. My question to you guys was if I were to make them out of wood, does anyone have any good designs that would be CHEAP (the big word here;). I've seen some of the X's, but I've seen those fall apart and I would like for the poles to be detachable. Would a square with a slot to slide the pole in work, has anyone tried that? I just figured I'd run it by you guys before I try anything!

Thanks in advance!!

I recently saw some on Parelli's website. They appear to be plywood cut in to triangles with three small cleats that hold the pole at various height. The thinnest plywood one would use is 5/8. Search his website and perhaps you can see how to built these. You would get 16, 2' triangles out of one sheet of plywood.

Wouldn't it be just as cheap and easy to purchase the plastic cavelletti blocks?
