Introduction: Motocross Gear Shelf
Hello and thanks for clicking on my post. My son received a motorcycle for his birthday and got all the gear he could ask for for Christmas and it was everywhere. So I decided to build a shelf to store it all and here is how I did it
2 old sprokets
Step 1: Cutting Material
This project was very fluid I had a plan in my head but it kept changing but the main pieces stayed the same.
Cut all the braiing and helmet shelf at 30 degrees this will give you a nice slope for the helmet to rest on
The sprocket I used for this shelf had 6 holes. By cutting this into 6 pieces you get 30 degree sections.
The other sprocket I cut into 4 sections making them 45 degree angles.
i used a cutting wheel with and angle grinder made quick work of this process
Since I dont have a welder I routed the 2x2 to fit the sprocket.
helmet shelf is 13x16
cubbies are 4x4x10
single shelves are 4x4
Step 2: Cubbies
I made 2 cubbies using scrap wood. I cut at 4 inches wide and made them to fit the goggles. used brad nails and glue to hold it all together.
Step 3: Predrill and Counter Sink Holes
This step will help you get the location of the shelves and ensure the wood wont split. Make assembly really easy
Step 4: Route and Sand
I used a round over bit in the router to make it simple. Then sanded everything to 120 grit.
Step 5: Paint
I choose to go with the colors of my sons helmet
Step 6: Put It All Together
pre drilling made this simple. My table is level so i used a level to make sure the shelves were all level as well
Step 7: Add Flair
I used my cricut to cut out his name and his number along with some racing decals.
Step 8: Change the Back Ground
The back ground was to plain for me so i scraped it and turned it into a helmet shape!! i free handed the design made it look as close as I could to my sons helmet
Step 9: Paint Again!
I did the best i could its not perfect but it turned out pretty cool.
Step 10: Hang It
I made sure to hit the studs. I hope you like this instructable tell me if i made the right choose on changing the back board!
