    Jet Ski Stand Build

    I waited a bit too long to make my stands and ended up not being able to make them until mid winter. <shame shame> Anyways, I just wanted to share the work with everyone.


    This was my first set built. The purpose for this stand is simply just to hold the ski, not to roll them around. So the was the reason I went with the smaller steel casters vs. pneumatic or rubber casters. They were extremely cost effective.

    I am selling these two stands off to some of my friends who want to keep their skis in their garage but not on their trailers. So I have already come up with a new and improved design that will allow me to have a larger caster and I will still be able to maintain the low height.

    All in all, I have around $130 into both of these stands and about 4-5hrs of work.

    Thanks,

    I would say $130 for 2 stands is cheaper. I just bought 4 2'" x 2" x 8' steel tubes for $70. 4" Casters with Brakes I'll get from eBay and the 2x4's from Home Depot. I'm gonna copy his design, but I'll post up measurements. I'm going to make my bunks line up to my trailer bunks to make it easier for ski transfers.
