I have a drill, a saw, timber screws and a tape measure. I don't have any wood glue though.What tools have you already got? Ideally you’ll want a drill, some decent pozi timber screws, some wood glue, a good saw, a tape measure, maybe a jigsaw or a plane depending on how ornate you want this fucking racking, and a screwdriver/torx driver to fit whatever timber screws you’ve bought.
Stick a sketch of what you’re planning on here.
B&Q’s quite pricey. It’s handy to get it all in one place but tools/screws/glue would be cheaper at Screwfix and the wood will be cheaper at a timber merchants if there’s one nearby.
I'll describe what I'm thinking so you guys can picture it first lol.
I'm thinking three long feet, one either end one in the middle. From each of those feet will go two bits of wood to make the sides of the rack.
Joining the sides will be 4 bits of wood to make two shelves each shelf being two bits of wood deep for the two ends of the dumbell to rest on.
I was thinking of just screwing everything in place.
Here comes the sketch.
