This is a rack to put dumbells on I made for my daughter and her husband. The wood is Oak and came from a pallet I got at work. I sanded it with a belt sander so it’s not as smooth as if I planed it. It will go under their bed so I guess that will be okay. I recessed plastic slider feet on the bottom to help it slide on carpet. In the last picture you can get an idea how rough the wood was to start with. I did sand the bottom some so it wouldn’t be too rough.
Edited 8/26/12; I just realized something after someone asked a question about this. I originally called it a barbell rack, but it’s a dumbell rack. Duh!

A very unique project the first barbell stand I’ve seen.

I was wondering what kind of table saw that is in the picture? I think i’m using the same one, and having a lot of trouble with it! Is it a delta?

waggs, Nope, it is a 1976 Craftsman with a Delta T2 fence added to it. It meets all my needs for now.

Was that fence a pain to install ?

No. It didn’t just bolt right on but it was worth it. I had to drill a few holes in the table.

RM,

???? Maybe for dumbbells(5# or10#) crosswise, or 100# barbells, What keeps them from rolling off?

whitewulf, I made it narrow enough so the weights straddle it. I’ll try to get a picture on here soon.
