Thread: Jet ski stand.

Jet ski stand.
I would like to build a simple jet ski stand for the Pro . The ski is on carpet in the shed. I'd like to get it off the ground about 3 feet. I know theres great cool posts about building them from steel n welding n stuff. but have no access to that. I have
4- new 2 by 4's
4- large caster wheels about 4 inch dia with 1.5 inches of thick bolt on top.
2 bunks, 4-foot,covered in black carpet with hardware for hanging attached.
1-2 inch square metal tube 8 foot long. 1/8 thick steel.
So thats what I have to build it at the moment. Things could change if I can get some alum or more steel. Nothing too fancy. The mice dont care!.lol
Any creative buiders out there? Looks like I need a cross memeber for it to support the weight of the ski. Bolting it together sounds safer than nailing or screwing it together.
Anyone have any pics of thier stand ? Maybe I could make the same but use wood in some places instead. Budget stand here! I got everything for free so far. Thanks for looking!

Cool! thx. Will do.
Wow, those are sturdy and great looking. great job on those. I'm thinking maybe i'll wait a bit more and see if I can get some more steel for the project. it has to be sturdy. Even bolted together would be ok.

welded carts cost to much to ship .
i would build my own out of the 2x4s but i would double them up in the frame and posts that support weight ,
i am wanting to make a stand the trailer in my shop is takeing to much room
i would use a miter saw , it wouldnt even need to be pressure treated wood it wouldnt see the water

Sl. those look sturdy allright. Nice ski by the way.lol Hmm. I,m gonna go by the scrap yard and see what they have laying around there. Maybe get some angle iron or more box tubing, then drill n bolt it together. i like the steel idea myself.
I see you put bottom supports on the bottom there. how did you get the bunks to attach? what about the vertical 2 by 4's? 4 inch nails?

I just took two mover dollys like these:
And bolted two 2x4's on angles where the carpeted part is on the dolly. Covered the 2x4's with carpet. Could slide the jet ski off the trailer right onto the 2x4's.
