Introduction: Bike Rack of Wood
When you have an expensive bicycle you don't like to store it in a garagebox or whatever. It is more interesting to place your bike in the living room, bed room, etc. Therefore I designed a stand made of wood, which is easy to create.
What you will need are the follow things:
- wooden plate (140x60 cm);
- wooden beam (40x40 cm);
- jigsaw, mitre saw;
- glue, clamps;
- grinding machine
When you use recycled materials it will cost you just a tube of glue :)
Step 1: Sawing the Different Parts
The drawings are uploaded in PDF file here. You can also find them on:
When you drew the lines on the plate you can saw them with a jigsaw. It's a good idea for screwing and/or clamping the "double parts" (horizontal & bow) together before sawing, on this way they are identical.
The beams you can saw with a mitre saw.
Step 2: Gluing the Parts Together
I've glued all the parts. Of coarse you can screw them together but gluing give a cleaner look. I only used 3 screws to fix the groundplate.
