If you or your child goes biking regularly, this multiple bike stand is a perfect way to store your bikes, as there’s no need to faff on hanging them up and getting them back down again…

What you’ll need :

  • 2 x 36 inch wood
  • 30 & 17 inch wood
  • 11 2×2 wood
  • Wood and pocket screws
  • Wood glue
  • Screwdriver

How to do it:

Step 1:

Drill 1 ½ pocket holes into 36 inch pieces. Then, using clamps if you have some, glue the 17 inch side pieces into place and secure with 2 ½ pocket screws.

Step 2:

For the back of the stand, repeat step 1 but with the 30 inch pieces.

Step 3:

Once again, repeat step 1 for the 36 inch cross supports. The middle support wants to be 10 7/8 inches down from the top support.
