Make a cheap backyard ice-skating rink
Hey, great instructable. Would it offend you if I pointed out some grammatical errors?
We did this as kids and we just made a berm with snow and flooded with water. I dont understand why you would buy pvc or wood for a rink. we started with a small amount and added layers until it was thick enough. So much fun! - darcyjr5
It's great to see that people are still doing this- looking at the comments I see there are a lot. My dad and the other dads in the neighbourhood would flatten the snow and build a rim from snow before flooding the area, as described by some of the others. Cost = $0. We kids had a lot of fun and, of course, no one worried about getting sued if a kid fell. - helecame
Great idea! Get some hose and hook to the drain of your water heater. - LandonP2
I live in a place where it has snowed twice in the last 200 years - but I found this really interesting. Thanks !! - CraigR20
Can't wait to make it what a fantastic idea with the pvc?
