Picture of Bike Storage/Display Cabinet

This tutorial makes more sense if you watch the included video I made as well. I built this bike storage/display cabinet so I could get my bike out of the garage and out on display so it can serve as the functional piece of art that I believe bicycles are. Here are a few of the materials I used building this project:

Track Saw -

Brad Nailer -

Edge Square -

Digital Angle Finder -

Spindle Sander -

Kreg Pocket Hole Jig -

Kreg Hinge Jig -

Hinges -

Flush Trim Saw -

Chisels -

Incra Edge Rule -

Screwdriver Kit -

Forstner Bits -

Tape Measure -

Square -

Angle Grinder -

Sander - Glue -

Miter Saw -

Drills -

Sander -

For this project I'm using a 5x5 sheet of Baltic Birch plywood. I was able to build almost the entire cabinet from this one sheet. I had to use a leftover scrap piece for the center divider. You can adjust materials for the size of your bike, and the type of wood or plywood you want to use. This project would look great in many different configurations and wood species.

- Break the plywood down into 4 pieces that are 47" x 13" and 4 pieces that are 13" x 13".

This is great and the handles are just perfect :D

Beautiful. Exposed mitered corners of baltic birch ply have always been one of my favorite looks. Been toying with various bike stands but I like this as it's a way to get the bike up off the floor and supported front and rear. As audreyobscura says, the sprocket handles are a great idea, but I can't imagine having to *buy* old chainrings. I have several I can't seem to throw away (although they are worn out) and could get more at my LBS just by asking to go through their trash.
