“This is my homemade rail recipe. I hope you like it!” – Andy Parry

Ingredients:

 

  • Two 2×6 by 10ft
  • Two 2×4 by 10ft
  • Three 1.5″ by 10ft PVC
  • Box of 2.5″ inch screws
  • A Circular Saw
  • A Drill

 

Instructions:

 

1. Cut

  1.  One 2×4 into Five 2′ segments
  2.  One 2×4 into Four 2’6” inch segments

 

Assemble

Layout your 2ft 2x4s with the 2x6s and screw them in. I like screw in the two ends first then flip it over and put the top on.




Line up your 3 PVC pipes on the ground. Place the frame on top and make sure they are flush with the end of the 2×6. Starting at one end screw the PVC making sure to adjust along the way. Screw in 4 sets of 3 screws for the whole rail.


Now add the remaining 4 2’6″ 2x4s as feet.

Your finished! Add pieces of plywood to the sides to strengthen the rail.
