Is diy duke your dad?

Bradley Cordero says:

Can you make a dumbbell holder?…not a dumbbell rack…a holder that holds the weights between sets?

muffemod says:

Dude you can just buy one for cheaper.

Grendelbc says:

Fun to build if you're into it. Quicker and easier to buy cheap on Craigslist.

NJReef says:

Do you think solid half inch rod would be a good substitute for the round tubing? I have some around but my only concern is gradual bending over time.

Isaac L says:

As a carpenter who lifts regularly I have an appreciation for the diy videos ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฟnice

Jesse Buehler says:

How about a deadlift platform

Nayde says:

Salute this guy for recycling! Great skills dad, that knowledge and drive is for sharing please continue to motivate people out of their comfort zone.

Wooten says:

Thank you Buff Dudes!

littlenel17 says:

could this be made using 4 x 4 for the frame and then drill holes to put the 3/4 in pipe through? cheaper and easier that way maybe

BlueSpades says:

Why don't you just build the weight tree on the rack like most racks have?… Or is this more of an accessory?

Gabe Shepardson says:

He reminds me of Bob Ross a little

Matthew Lavergne says:

Go to WoodPrix webpage if you'd like to know how to build it. Good solutions for everyone I think

Gar Bear says:

This is great ๐Ÿ‘

arghidontknow says:

This is great and all, but if you don't have a welding machine I'd recommend looking on Craigslist. My local Craigslist had a weight tree for free (missed that unfortunately) but I regularly see them for anywhere from 25-50 dollars. Amazon also has new ones for 60+. Of course, if you're like me and you have a ton of scrap metal laying around, a welding machine and you actually enjoy this, then this is a fun easy project regardless. Great vid!

Robert In-The-Moment says:

Excellent. Looks great ๐Ÿ‘
