I've seen pictures somewhere of similar homemade baskets using old truck tires for the basket. Ugly looking things, but they looked like they'd work fine. Peabody's design looks much better, but I always liked the idea of reusing old tires & keeping them out of the landfills etc.

The most expensive part of a home-made disc golf basket is the chain (if you want metal chains). Lots of inexpensive options exist for the rest of the basket, but if you want metal chains, to buy them new is ridiculously expensive – almost to the point where you’d be better off just buying one of the portable baskets on the market.

I would suggest going to yard sales and asking if the people have any chain for sale. Chain is expensive, but there isn’t much else to do with it once you are done with it (at least for non-disc golfers). Lots of people may have chain they have no reason to keep, but would never imagine they could sell it to someone else.

Gotta love this one best. You can really set this one on fire like the video plus you can throw some burgers and dawgs on there to boot!
