I built myself some shelving for the gym today. It’s a three deck garage workshop piece from Bunnings. The manufacturer is a local mob called Pinnacle.
It’s 1.2m long, hip height, with a wooden bench top and two thick wire rack shelves with 200KG carrying capacity.
It was a heavy bastard to lug downstairs and I was worried that putting it together was going to be like IKEA raised to the power of a Mechwarrior attack.
But it mostly snapped into place without a problem or even the need for a second pair of hands. It’s also about half the price of dedicated weight racks which aren’t nearly as sturdy or functional.
I am pleased.
I used the same type of bench for my homebrewery. It handled two 100 liter pots and associated gear for years.
my entire shed and workshop are full of their shelves and benches , great stuff !
I mean, it’s nice and all ... but the dead dog on the table that no one is talking about is the actual lack of weight in that weight room. I guessing Birmo does his Rhino or Havok level lifting at a gym somewhere. I get a poor author type not being able to afford extra. Don’t you sons of convicts have yard sales where you can find this stuff cheap? Tons usually go on sale after New Years resolution purchases and subsequent fails to actually workout.
That's a very nice set up there JB, Bunnings comes through for the nation again!
Good shelves are an underrated, but vital, part of the successful home workshop/gym.
