Remember that jump I was making? Uhm… last year? I’ve been working on it off and on for the past few days, and finally finished it up this afternoon:
The holes in the wood look all nice and even from the front, but the backside? Not so much. 😀 I’m not too handy with a drill, methinks…
I made the jump cups out of a recycled soda can. They were pretty easy to make, as the shape is just a fat “T” that’s bent around the standards. Punch a couple holes, add a chain and wire pin and voila! Jump cups!
They’re not as fancy as cast ones from places like Rio Rondo, but I don’t care. I enjoyed making them myself. 🙂
Anyway, now that it’s done I’m wondering if I made the whole thing too small. Here’s my Gem Twist in front of it, to show the scale:
I’ve been looking through pictures and have noticed that the space between the standards seems to vary. Any thoughts?
But it’s pony sized! I’m not sure if Bouncer would be able to make it over that high a jump though…hee!
