In a few places, drill holes all the way through. You use two different drill bits: the 1st time through, use a bit that is big enough just to fit the threads of the screw through. On the 2nd time through, use a bit that is big enough to fit the head of the screw through, but only drill one side of the pipe. Then, put the pipe down where it needs to go (big hole on top), and use a magnetic screwdriver to carefully insert the screw through the hole, and then screw it into the wood. You can do this with metal pipe, too (recommended, as pvc can break/crack).

wood and pvc equals fun for like 2 days, you can drill though the top layer and then woodscrew through that (2"pvc) the problem is making a sturdy wood base, because sessions shred hard, and wood warps, you could think about using J bolts (like for masonry) you drill a hole through the bottom and then put the J bolt in and wrench them down every so feet, i highly recomend investing in a solid metal rail, because wood strucures arnt going to be very veristile holding a rail 2 ft in the air, get a nice long galvanized metal 2" thick rail and weld it, either research welding or find a friend to do a more proffesional job

draw up some plans that basically outline the design you want, then go to a shop near where u live (there bound to be one) that works with metal and ask them to weld it for you, it will cost like $10 for the materials if u want real nice sliding metal and about 15$ for labor

if it doesn't slide now, then you have nothing to lose, attempting to wax it. I think you should try it.

Thumbs up My new prail

Hey, I just made my first prail and it was soo easy to make. Hella fun too! I basically used the same design as you did for yours but I used wooden brackets instead of the metal ones. Thanks for posting your prail pic btw. It really helped me decide what design I should use. Here's a picture of the finished rail. I'll add an edit of it to youtube soon. Cheers!

Post quick edit

Ok, here's the p-rail edit I promised. Note that I've only been skating for 2 weeks now so it's not that good. Here's the link.

Feel free to give some input!
I'll make a better edit as soon as I get my camera working right.
