How to Make a HillBoard

Introduction: How to Make a HillBoard

About: Game Nox is a Computer Game Company run by...who else? Me and a few friends and family. Visit my site! www.noxinformer.yolasite.com!

This is a very easy to make and I didn't even need to buy anything. Inspiration for this was from freeza36 and Higgs Boston. Here's what you need:

Rolling Trash Can Wheels X1
Rolling Cart Wheels (They MUST be able to mount by screws) X1
2X4 (Big enough to lie down on) X1
Plywood (or any kind of flat wood, should be a little smaller than 2X4) X1
Screws X6
Nail (Kinda a carpet tack.) X1

(I put a pic of everything in the second picture.)

Thats basicly all you need besides a hill.

Step 1: Attach the Wheels

This is the hardest part. The rolling cart wheel is easy just use 4 out of the 6 screws to attach it. The trash can wheel is hard. There are many ways to attach it. The way I did it is taking a electric pipe securer and screw (you'll need extra screws) it to the 2X4 then hammer it flat. Get the nail and hammer it INTO the pipe securer and BAM! they're attached.

Step 2: Attach the Plywood

Or any flatwood in this case...

Use the rest of the 2 screws to screw into the flatwood and attach it to the 2X4.

Step 3: Enjoy!!!!

Enjoy your new hill board. Feel free to post mods as I am going to do so later. Pleas give credit though. Some of the mods coming up is:

    This is really cool man. If I were you, I would consider using skateboard bearings and wheels. This is now in my guide!

    Ha I depends on the hill but it is still pretty fast on a normal hill.

    IDK its produces enough friction to melt a plastic cart wheel. A big hill is about at a 45* angle.

    Nice. This is pretty cool. I recommend you use skateboard trucks. they don't need to be expensive. 8 - 20 dollar boards from wallmart have pretty good trucks. also you may want to reduce the size of your seat to make transport easier and to reduce weight so you can accelerate faster.

    Other than that cool project!

    In photo 1 of step 1 I think you should have used two brackets instead of one to secure the spindle to the table.
