yes yes pictures are great (and agreed with the nice work) but I was more interested in tips and tricks for making better fields

Sorry guys - long day at work today - I should have explained that pretty much all the materials are cast off lumber, pallets and stuff left behind by various people/businesses. Just wanted to show off some damn cool examples. I'll hit the 'Show Us'
thread soon.

some of my favorite things..

from home depot:
"oops" paint.. $5/ gallon.
6' x 6" x 1/2" dog eared pickets - $1.19 -$1.59/ea.

a touch of paint makes mis-matched salvaged wood look pretty good. an off white (if possible) helps hide old paint residue.

we usually try to get to the field an hour or so before game time, and pick up all the downed trees and sticks and dead fall (that people would trip over anyway) and use that to make 90% of our bunkers, we play at a gravel pit (the part we use obviously inst the pit) owned by one of the guys relatives and if someday we don't get to use the land we wont have much for cleanup. Most of our bunkers look something like this. Some 2 feet tall some 6 feet tall and everywhere in between.

One of my favoirte building blocks at our field is the huge crates I get from a local warehouse. You can compare the size to 6 or 7 standard pallets stacked. We've satcke 3 on top of each other and used them as corners fro a fort.

These threads are making want to get back out htere and build!

I guess I'm blessed when it comes to building materials. I own a business that cleans up vacant properties for the mtg. co. that owns them. I make sure all of my contractors know where my place is and that they can drop off materials any time they like, as long as they are usable. I say no to mdf- type woods, shingles and and any wood under 2 foot long. That pretty much keeps the riff-raff out.
I have a teamate that works for a local moving company; he provides us with lots of pallets and shipping crates.
Don't forget to check the scratched/dent/warped pile at your local Lowes/Depot/ woodyard. Some places mark down 10-20%, some 50 or 60%. Find your local good spots.
Check with a teamate that does construction. Some Job Bosses are actually happy to have you pull usable scraps out of their dumpster; saves them on dump fees at $15-20 a cu. yard.
Check with local fencing companies; the one up the street from me gives awy all of the old fencing they drag back to the shop.

I'll post up more sources as I think of them.

I'm going to have to start checking around that's ridiculous.
