Building and Riding the Backyard "Flight Deck"

  • Published on Sep 13, 2019
  • Nothing says "home improvement" like building a mountain bike park in your yard. Today, we build an elevated roll-in deck at the summit of Berm Peak. I'm calling it, "The Flight Deck". In the future, we could build drops, bridges, or any number of features off the flight deck. This was a pretty big build for one amateur carpenter to do in a weekend, so I sure learned a lot on this one. Enjoy!

    For build stuff out in space, a 3 axis laser level would be life changing for you. I use them all the time for mechanical alignments. They aren’t super expensive and save loads of time and rework.
    Milwaukee Fuel battery tools, try and break them! If you do, they have a 5 year warranty.

    Wood structures can get pricey. My in-laws were getting rid of there deck so I removed it from there house and reinstalled at my house. I had alot to work with so i overkilled on the support and made a walkway to it. Lot of work but it was free!

    Put walls and a watertight ceiling underneath it, run some electrical and you got the perfect spot to store power tools, bikes, and anything else!

    His videos inspire me to do stuff like this. Except i build a platform out of rotten 2x4's and attempt to drop off of it on my walmart mountain bike. And eat absolute sh*t.

    Cut 1" slits down the pipes on the tool rack so you can pull them straight out instead of having to shimmy them up and out

    I'm always amazed at your ability to make things you build look super professional. If I had $10 for every time I had to reverse my drill and take out a screw...
