PS to bicycle repair stand
Materials: Ikea PS closets
Description: Some day i realized, that i desperately need a bicycle repair stand. To save space it should be somehow connected to a workbench and tool-storage box.
well, the free market did not offer somethin like that for cheap so i decided to hack one myself.
step one: get a (used) ikea ps tv closet
step 2: chop off the flimsy legs and stabilize the corners with sheets of plywood (10mm at least). Not shown in pictures but strongly recommended!
step 3: screw on some heavy duty wheels (also ikea)
step 4: get a big metal tube (~ 1.5m long) and fit the claw to it.
step 5: cut chipboard boards for the inside and the top side of your Ikea PS closet (13mm).
step 6: cut holes in ‘em to stick your metal tube in.
step 7: Profit!
