Building stunts with forest lumber only
So I've been working on some stunts and jumps on a friend's land, which requires a pretty long ride in to get to the start of the DH section. I'm trying to avoid hauling a bunch of lumber into the forest. Hoping to build some ladders and skinnies using only forest material. Does anyone have any tips on pulling this off? Pics and/or ideas would be great.
Keeping it looking natural
Redwood is great to work with, it splits straight and lasts a long time!
The Forest I do some trail building on dose not allow man made fetchers. They think liability is an issue with man made stunts and even bridges. I try to use natural materials without fasteners and make it look like it just happened to be there.
Here is a photo of a small jump made with split redwood. I put a notch in the log to help keep it in place without screws or nails.
