I am planning on trying to make my own quad sticks and was hoping to get some advice from others who may have done the same i.e what design/wood they used, what did they use to keep the set together chain/rubber/rope? Pics, diagrams etc all helpful.

another add on Tim I use the fitting screws that join kitchen cabinets together,work perfectly with no thread damage. 5mm hole and a fixed length when tightened.A little bit to add with what I have learnt over time, if you use 5mm bolts then as will wear over time you can fit 6mm ones. The jump from 6 is 8 in standard metric which is a bit chunkey.
On the bottom joint if you stagger the holes ie 40 and 60 then it will leave each pair with one point on each side helping it find get a better grip when the ground drys up.
Nice............far better than inner tube lolanother add on Tim I use the fitting screws that join kitchen cabinets together,work perfectly with no thread damage. 5mm hole and a fixed length when tightened.
