I made one with PVC and the pipe insulation that people use to float on in the pool. I have it fairly low to the water for stability and the cross pieces are about 2 1/2 feet long. Sorry I'm not much with pictures But that will get you started

I used pvc in a cross with a vertical piece in the middle to slide the mojo in. I attached 4 decoys to the "cross" for added stability. Works great. EMT works well too.

I used 1/2" PVC. For the post to put the decoy in, I went from 1/2" to 3/4". I have used this on big water with boat wakes and waves. It has never flipped.
The top of the 3/4" pole will need to be wollered out with a drill bit to except the square 3/4" Mojo decoy.
It measures 24" x 24".
1-1/2" to 3/4"

This is a very easy float and cost me the total of Zero dollars since I had everything at my house. I used my little sisters cheap boogie board. I painted it black, added some foam pipe insulation to the sides. I drilled a hole in the center for the pole and added a small piece of would for stability. It is a very stable rig.
