Default Homemade DiscCatcher Gallery

ive seen a few other posts about homemade catchers but i figured this could be the place where everyone shows off their design, talks about the specific pieces, where they got them from, and how much it costs.

Heres mine:

2''pvc - free from friend
webber charcole grate, lowes, - $11
26'' pond liner(whiskey barrel liner), lowes, - $15
50' chain, lowes, - .49cents/foot -$25
base - cut legs from table i had
3 L-brackets(to hold up the bucket, not visible)-$5.75
Total - about $56

very light, 12 outer chains, 12 inner chains

Notes: I wanted to make something portable because my back yard isnt very big. so everything slides together. The pole with the L brackets into the base, the bucket slide down the pole and sits on the brackets, i cut slits in the top of the pipe so the grill would slide in, then cap it. The chains are secured with zip ties. Made it in about 2 hours with a dremmle tool.

the top grate is 22'', the chains are supposed to be 22 inches each...but the duches at lowes cut a couple with different link amounts...so i left the zip ties lose on top so i could adjust them if nessacary...the chains prob would have been better if they were 20 or 21 because they JUST touch the bucket..and i wanted them just above the bottom of the bucket....but it dose the trick!
