How to Build a Wood BMX Box Jump

Save

A BMX box jump is a box with ramps at each end. You use the ramps to jump over the box with a BMX bike. Using a wood BMX box jump is a fun way of spending time in the outdoors and building your own can be a rewarding experience. If you do not want to spend hundreds of dollars on custom made box jumps, you can build your own box jump for a low price.

Things You'll Need

  • 3 pieces of 5-by-3-foot plywood board
  • 92-foot-long wood slat
  • Screwdriver
  • Screws
  • Circular saw
  • Saw horse
  • Place the wood slat on a saw horse and cut it using a circular saw. Cut eight 5-foot-long pieces, four 4-foot-long pieces and 12 3-foot-long pieces.

  • Make two rectangles from the wood slats by screwing two 3-foot-long and two 5-foot-long slats together using the screwdriver.

  • Make a box by screwing the two rectangles together at the corners using four 3-foot-long slats. Screw one 3-foot-long slat to one of the corners of the rectangle, then screw the second rectangle to the other end of the 3-foot-long slat. Repeat this until you have screwed all 3-foot-long slats to the corners of the rectangle.

  • Screw the 4-foot-long slats to the four bottom corners of the rectangular box. Connect the end of the 4-foot-long slats to the four top corners of the rectangular box by screwing the remaining 5-foot-long slats on the frame.

  • Screw one 3-foot-long slat in the center of the two 5-foot-long sides of the rectangular box to give the frame additional strength. You now have the BMX jump box frame ready.

  • Screw the three plywood boards onto the frame, one on top of the rectangular box and the remaining two on top of each ramp.

Tips & Warnings

  • Change the measurements if you want to build a larger BMX box jump.
  • Wear goggles to protect your eyes from flying debris.
