Dude, nice half-pipe...
Last weekend Mike and I went to Sedro-Woolley to celebrate birthdays with Susanna and Clayton. Susanna made an incredible Thai soup (similar to Pho - no recipe yet, but hopefully she'll craft one soon) for Clayton's birthday dinner, and she was very excited to receive her new ipod touch. Aidan roped Mike into helping him with a special project: a half-pipe for his latest interest, finger-sized skateboards.
The half-pipe was created by cutting a 5-gallon bucket in half. The base is plywood and 2x4's, painted black. The bucket held concrete in it's previous life, and while they worked hard to get it all out, I think the leftover bits add to the overall look of a well-used skate park.
