Wall Mounted Exercise Storage
This is a simple afternoon build to store your smaller exercise equipment pieces up off the floor. Made with a half sheet of plywood with a modern aesthetic, this project makes it easy to store small hand weights, yoga mats, and other pilates or barre equipment.
Circular Saw (corded)
- 1 Plywood , 1/2" Thick , Half Sheet
- 1 Board , 1x2 , 24"
- 1 Board , 1x3 , 24"
- 1 Dowel , Dowel , 24"
Hardware & Supplies
- 4 Shelf pins
- 16 3/4" soft wood screws
- 1 120 Grit Sandpaper
Cut Your Plywood
First up, cut your plywood. I chose to make my shelf 8" deep to be a bit deeper than my hand weights.
Cut the 1x3 support and the 1x2 yoga mat brackets to length. I used a 30 degree angle for one end of the 1x2 cuts.
Drill Pocket Holes
Add 2 pocket holes to each end of your top and bottom piece of plywood as well as to each end of the support bracket (1x3)
Drill Shelf Pin Holes
Drill the shelf pin holes in the sides of your shelf. You can also drill shelf pin holes in the bottom of your flat plywood panel if you'd like to hang resistance bands and such.
Assemble the box by using screws in your predrilled pocket holes. Use screws through the back of the flat plywood panel to attach the yoga mat brackets (I predrilled pilot holes for this).
