i made this instructable because there are many hovercraft instructions out there but none are specific! so i took the liberty of building one and provided this instructable. it goes about 2" above the ground and costs only $50 to build. EASY!!!!!

Step 1: Materials

1. 1/4" thick 36" wood circle or bigger
2. plastic sheeting at least 4ml (thicker is better)
3. 2 1/2" hole saw
4. duct tape
5. electric blower at least 120mph (I used a homelite two speed $30 at home depot
6. a small bolt and nut with washers

      the price altogether was $48.50 all at home depot

Step 3: Drill the hole

take the 2 1/2" hole saw and drill a hole about 1 foot from the center to attach the blower using duct tape.

Step 5: Put it together

now you need to cut some holes around the center of the plastic about as big as a bottle cap. and tape everything together plug in the blower a ta da !!!! your done to get it off the ground you need to wiggle alot and it should hold it took me a couple times and i broke it many times but until you get the hang of it watch out!

thank you harrison! I watched you build this haha. Quick note is to make sure the plastic is duct taped securley. it took a while to get it. and i got to see it work and it actually works great you can go down a driveway. it would work even better if you brought it to an ice skating rink.
