PostSubject: Wooden Park Build and Progress   Tue Jun 02, 2015 8:32 am

Hey guys, I've been wanting to build a park for a while now and I finally got the time to design and build it.  I'm going to post updates here on my progress and will gladly accept feedback as I go along.  I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I will enjoy building it.

Here's some general info about the project.  The park will be 2'x4' with the tallest point being 6".  I'm going to build the park on a 3/4" birch plywood base with 1/4" birch being used for the ramps and surfaces. I haven't figured out what I'm going to use for the half pipe yet.  I hear 3 ply birch is the way to go but I've no idea where to find it.  I'll be using all hand tools for the cuts as I don't have a table saw or jigsaw.  Any experience with this would be awesome.

Below is my design, I'm hoping that I've left enough room to land tricks and such.  I really didn't know what to do with some of the space such as the platform I added next to the half pipe.  Any Ideas or changes before I get started?

Preliminary Design:





Finished the base, just waiting for the glue to dry.


I have a little less than half the frame cut and the base finished. I'll keep working on it tomorrow.


Im using a pull saw to cut the frame. I have to use painters tape on both sides to get clean cuts. I then mark it and use a board as a straight edge to get straight cuts.


I decided to get organized today. A clean workspace is key to quality.


I did a test fitting to day of most of what I've cut. It's all going to need sanding which I will do once all the pieces have been cut. I still need to cut the transitions, the pyramid, and the large elevated platform.

Looks sick!!! Also I like the way it flows. You could walk around the outside and do a line without problems! Keep us posted and I hope it goes well for you!

such a good design, i say leave that flat ground spot because you can never go wrong with having somewhere to do flat ground and you could always throw a removable rail/ledge there too.

Damn, looks SICK!!!

Bit of flat ground is essential in my books. Like meekin said, PERFECT area for adding a moveable flat-bar, ledge, manual pad or something happy

Looks sick, only thing I would do is make it an actual spine transfer with two things of coping and no room in the Middle. That would be crazy fun.

I originally thought about doing this but I wasn't sure I could make it. I'll look into it though, there's still time to change it.

Be careful about making your banks too short and steep. Had a wooden park and constantly wished some of the banks were longer and mellower. Just a tip!

Still cutting all the pieces, so there's not really much to take pictures of. Once I start sanding and test fitting I'll have more

If I had a tablesaw and a jigsaw, I'd make short work of it. But using hand tools will be much more satisfying in the long run. I'll try and test fit some stuff tonight and get more pics up
