Well I’ve made several of these now. There were a couple things about this one that were different. A different paint scheme, with the triangle. Primed the entire board white, then marked off the triangle with tape, painted the two colors, then peeled the tape up to reveal the white stripe.

The other feature that was new is shown in picture 3 and 4. I always put a piece of cord in there on a cleat so you can pull it out and connect the two boxes with clips, so you can just pull the cord tight and not have to measure the distance between the boxes, (27 feet face to face, 33 feet hole to hole). Some people are fussy about these thing! :) well, if you put a lag eye or bolt eye on the bottom of your box, it won’t stand up on end to store very well, so I counter sunk a hole to put the bolt eye into, so it can be clipped to the rope, but also stand up to be stored. I know I’m crazy, but these are the little things that make it fun to do these simple projects. :) Thanks for looking.

Those turned out real nice. That recessed eye bolt is a great idea. I might have to borrow that.

The little fun projects, and these look great by the way, are the projects that I tend to get the most pleasure from. The great huge complicated builds I sometimes do, are finished then out of my shop. The small things I get to see in use, here or somewhere else.
You did a great painting job on these. Well done.

Great job Tim. I’ve seen these at games in Columbia. Yours are a real eyecatcher. And by the way GO COCKS.
