Introduction: How to Build a Floating Dock Using Heineken Mini Kegs.

Step 1: Drink 96 Hieniken Mini Kegs and Then Get Them to the Location.

Step 2: Place Mini Kegs in Pre Built Wood Frame.

Step 3: Secure the Mini Kegs.

We used some old fence line laying around and stapled it to the frame... We are redneck like that....

Step 4: Drag the Soon to Be Dock Out Into the Water.

Step 5: Flip It Over and Find a Good Place to Secure It to Land.

just drive a couple of steaks into the ground and secure the dock with some chain or whatever you can find laying around. We used some coaxil cable.... And there you have a floating dock.

    you can also try PET bottles inside plastic boxes and you can make a larger and stable dock :D

    But that would take the best part of the project out, unless beer comes in plastic bottles too ;)

    How much would one of these kegs cost i the US? The last time i bought one(I guess those are 5l?(169fl.oz)) I paid 300NOK, or 54 USD, so I think it would be a little to expensive for me to make.

    They are only about $24 U.S. We have accumulated a couple hundred more and are about to begin on a shed.

    I believe the best part is emptying all these kegs.

    What a coincidence. All of my DIY projects start off with this same first step!

    The first step should be "Drink 96 mini heineken kegs and then when you are sober again (and not diead from alchool overdose) get them to the location" Preety cool project.

    Our next project starts in about a month, and we will construct a shack out of heiniken mini kegs and heiniken bottles to let in light. I think we'll call the "Heini-Hut". kind catchy huh?

    What a great idea, I suppose it could be used with anything with sealed air inside as well, such as discarded plastic bottles which wash up all over the place and apear everywhere. Great work guys I like it, how long did it take you to drink all that beer.......?

    Had the same idea that you did.  Here is what I came up with.
    Worked well overall - but - if you place your pier/dock in a river that carries 6" diameter trees 12' up the bank - be smarter than I was - secure it with more than some cinder block anchors.  A few weeks after the build, my dock headed down the Cahaba toward the Gulf; never to be seen again.

    about a year, we have several saved up now... I think we are going to build a floating duck house neck.
