Hey archiel,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!

Since building a floating dock would require marine grade products not typically sold at a Home Depot, we can't really delve into exact how-to's of making one.

For starters, you didn't tell us the specific size and shape you'd like. I've been on several floating docks throughout the southeastern U.S., and each one is different for fresh and salt water.

If you give us specific measurements of what you want, we can give you some basic information on how to construct it.

At the minimum, I'd recommend you to use rust-resistant bolts and fasteners as well as exterior grade wood for building everything.

Please update us with your sizes, and we can assist you further.
