Introduction: Dumbbells Box

Picture of Dumbbells Box

A box to keep your dumbbells, with casters to tidy your room without lifting the dumbbells.

The box is deep enough so you can put your additional dumbbells or other stuff.

Your dumbbells box is ready !
you can paint it with the color of your choice, MDF is a very good material for painting. I've been lazy on this one so I just let it as it is.

What kind of dumbbells are those?

codongolev (author)2008-11-15

if you have dumbbells in the first place.. why would you put casters on it so you don't have to lift them?

he likes exercise but not his wife when she is cleaning as he said above

That is a nifty little box to hold the dumbbells! Not just to hold the dumbbells, but to store workout equipment as well.

you could use a jigsaw to cut in handles on two sides in order to lift that box more ergonomically.

Don't make it to tall in case nephews roll them off the side and they hit the floor hard. Great invention.

Good idea. My weights end up all over the bedroom and the kids like to get into them. Add a lid that locks and I've got a nice storage system that's safe from kids as well.

Very nice way to keep the weights in order. My husband and I live in a 1br apartment and I keep all of my freeweights in the living room. If I get around to making things again I will definitely consider your design and maybe modify it to include an upper cover for a footrest. Great job!

actually it is for my wife : when she is cleaning the room, she needs to move the dumbbells without lifting them :)

Dumbells are pretty heavy, it's better to make the box strong :)

Hey nice job! It looks like you could have done this with a lot less material, but better safe than sorry.
