Looking for a rough idea of costs for the basic materials. So everything excluding the hold sets themselves. So plywood, fixings etc.
Yeah I built one last December. Are you planning on building yours indoors or out because that will make a big difference to the cost of things?
Are you going to make yours free standing or bolted to roof beams within the garage?
I ask indoor or out because a lot of the cost of mine was having sufficient timber to make it both free standing outdoors and having treated timber like marine ply.
I think bolted in place.
hi, i have just built one myself, outdoors in the garden. i have spent about 400 pounds in everything except the holds. feel free to email me (email@example.com) and i can send you pics of the building process.
good luck! miki
I designed a folding version which I planned to bolt through the kickboard to my garage. If you want the file as a reference (google sketchup) just drop me your email address and I'll send it over. Can be quite handy for getting the measurements and spacing from.
Sorry, I have no idea of cost of materials.
I find that pretty interesting. I've been training on the moon original set and I reckon its brilliant. I haven't had any problems on them and they are a really good texture and well designed holds.
I have to admit that I'be never tried the moon board holds but I have been thinking of building a moon board some day. I was just bringing up what they said on UKB since they know a thing or two about training.
Do you have your own moon board or do you use one at a wall somewhere? You live in the South-East I believe?
Ah ok fair enough.
I have my own moonboard out in the garden and it has been massively beneficial!!
