    My $25 Homemade Powerblocks Stand

    When the pandemic started I had no equipment at home as I used to work out in the gym. I was able to grab a set of Powerblocks dumbells and kettlebell off of Amazon. Like a bonehead I didnt buy a bench or weight stand. Was able to finally find a commercial bench but stands are tough to find and the prices are ridiculous. So I built my own.

    This stand cost me $25. Here is everything that I used.

    -Metal legs that I found on the side of the road to be thrown out - free

    -Wood for top came from left over decking - free

    -Wood for the box that holds the adder weights came from old solid wood drawers that I found on the road to be thrown out - free

    -Wood for the base came from plywood shelving I found on the road to be thrown out - free

    -Paint, stain and polyurethane left over from projects in my house - free

    -Throwaway brushes - $5 at the hardware store

    -Bolts and screws - free + $5 at the hardware store

    -Wheels - bought a 1000lb dolly at Harbor Freight and disassembled it - $15 on sale.

    Let me know what you guys think. The last pic is the tablesaw I used to build it. Found it a few years ago for $100 and refurbished it. Its roughly from 1955, solid metal, no plastic. Weighs about 400lbs.

    Home made, solid and well built. I like it. The wheels are a good idea making it easier to move and store.

    Excellent DIY rendition of the stand and dirt cheap to build compared to buying their Home Rack Stand new (which I own and while it's nice and all, it's very expensive for what it is), this DIY stand is better looking in my opinion.

    Go to Powerblocks website and send them an e-mail to send you a free decal sticker for it, I received a nice bubble logo sticker which I decided to put on the steel front facing below the top of the stand surface...

    Looks great!
    Here was mine, though I spent a lot more than $25... considering the dumbbell saddles, angle iron, and saw table base had to be purchased.
