Did you build one? Linked in the next line is how I attached it to land so you don’t have to swim out!
What you will need
11 pieces of 2×8 at 10 feet long
22 pieces of 1×6 decking at 10 feet long
2 1/2 inch decking screws
4 Barrels (45-55 gallons) i found mine on KIJIJI for 24$ each
Mitre or Circular Saw
100 Feet of Dock Rope.
GIPHY App Key not set. Please check settings
Clamp an electric trolling motor on and you got yourself a nice boat
How much weight can this support/Does anyone know roughly how much weight any given number of barrels can support?
Either way awesome video thank you!
i live in jamaica next to a river and i built one by watching you lol thanks
hi nice idea
If you are concerned about moving the weight of the completed dock, I would have completed the build and then removed half or two-thirds of the decking, leaving enough to keep it square, drag it into the water and then reinstall the decking.
Great pier! It can be used as a raft for a mini dredger to clean the lake from mud. To do this, you need a motor pump for dirty water and a suction nozzle Bagermaster
Is this dock useful for sea?
Hi! This video is great, thank you!
I am looking to build a tiny dock just to put 2 chairs on to fish off. Could I get away with 4 barrels (2 on each side touching circle parts) or do you think I need a different floatation device? Also would it be compromised if I added rails?
Wow, your space and life are beautiful. Enjoy it and appreciate it.
Cool video. Were can I buy the barrels?
Is it just me or is she using pressure treated wood!? I don't think that is good for the lake.
thanks. used your idea but instead i’m making an 8×8 ft dock with 4 barrels so it will move around less when people walk on it. and it was a bit cheaper lol
looks fantastic! 😀
good good salam from lndonesia
lovely lady and lovely dock!!
girls doing woodwork keep it up
Nice DIY video , just a quick question. What the volume / capacity of the barrel used ?
Maybe it’s mentions in one of the comments too, sorry didn’t scroll through all the comments
DC Woodworks – Is the dock difficult to remove from the water when storing for winter? I'm planning to make my own in a couple of months. Our house is on the Cuyahoga River and I'm excited to see how this works! Already have 6 barrels…now just need the wood!
Price of lumber. FJB

Excellent video – thank you.
hi. if you were going to build a 4 ft wide by 16' long dock, how would you place the barrels?
