Wooden pontoon

Made from pine wooden crates.

Size: 2sqm’s by 500mm’s in depth

Pontoon is sitting on four chunks of foam blocks and I’ll never make another!

This was made 3 months ago.

Interesting, So whats it for? How long do you think the wood will last in the water. What did you use to seal it. Very interesting project you have posted.

Looks like a floating dock for swimmers, looking at the water, they must be having the same high water
problems down under that we are having here. Looks like the Yellowstone River, too thin to plow and too
thick to drink. Unless he is Crocodile Dundee’s buddy, we may have to guess why he will not be making

even if you didn’t like building it,, it looks cool, looks like it would be more fun to walk up to rather than swim out too, maybe its just my age.,, very nice none the less. Great Job

What it is for you ask? Too climb on, jump off to go swimmimg or to sum bake on it!
Sealer wise it has some thought of coating on it, not sure what because the wood were wooden crates from USA…
