    I am so bookmarking this and making some when I get back to MN and all of Ryan's tools and I won't have to lug them halfway across the country. Thanks!

    Nice! I'm sending this to my son so he can build some for Toker. She needs something to do that's fun. She'd love it. Thanks for posting. Fin looks like he loves it!

    Looks good. I really like the taping job.

    3/4 can be problematic if your dog ever takes out the jumps. Can break Ts and other joints. All of mine are 1" like in competition and should last forever. Kerri's got buckets of old 3/4 jumps sitting around in states of disrepair from before Mark started to weld her equipment.

    Sturdy.. but not an available size from most hardware stores here. To go to a plumbing store it's about $50 in PVC

    Less sturdy, but was $20 or less in PVC

    Last years project.. Way way cheaper.. Less than $5 in PVC, all scrap wood and tremclad we had at our house already. Labour intensive but fun to look at..

    Apparently I never took any pics.. YouTube - Jump Weave

    Crappy lighting and uneven ground YouTube - Smudge Better Video

    Without cups yet

    Red one in the middle is wooden and easier and cheaper to make YouTube - Independant Teeter Performance

    Before adding jump cups last year
