I missed that one... sorry about that. I haven't been reading all the posts on the forum for the past few months. I've been working a lot of overtime. I've added it now

Here are some pictures of a platform I built

I built this platform for my good freinds Matts birthday. Matt showed me how to hit the bag for the first time a couple months ago on his brothers bag. He himself didnt have his own board and bag. His brother was going to buy him the 70 or 80$ set up. I told him to have his brother just buy him a good bag and swivel and I would build the platform 60$ later I had this built I wanted to build the board a little thicker but wood is so expensive lol thought you guys might like to see it. I will post a video as soon as he gets his bag.

Ninja - did you build the platform and the steel mount or just the wood ?

I am interested in the steel mount - and if that is home built - I can weld and I am looking for projects...

either way it looks great !

My new platform

I scrounged some 3 inch angle iron and for a case of beer the fitters welded this up for me. The drum is 2 pieces of plywood glued together. With 10lbs of lead on the top it is super solid and fast. The other setup I made for my boy actually cost more to build!

That is a beautiful board. I bet it will sound really nice.
