Simple Jump Design
I have often been asked about making jumps to use in the garden. The design shown in the picture is simple but effective. I don't think I need to write instructions but a shopping and cutting list might be useful.
2 lengths of 34mm x 34mm x 2.4m. From these cut 6 uprights 80cms
2 lengths of 18mm x 94mm x 2.4mm. From each cut 3 at 45cms and 3 at 35cms
1 x 3m length of 32mm waste pipe. Cut this to make 3 x 1 metre poles.
100 3.5mm x 30mm stainless screws
waterproof wood glue (Small)
20 plastic joint connector blocks
jump cups (I sometimes have these in stock)
Those plastic connector blocks give a good 3 point contact but also keep the wood off the ground when parked on the patio. Built well and painted these will last for years. Though a more complex design the ones we use in training are 9 years old!
