Ball racks are used in gyms, on soccer fields and other recreational areas. They come in handy when a bunch of balls need to be organized and kept out of the way. Ball racks can easily be made out of wood in minutes without affecting your budget dramatically.
Things You'll Need
- Tape measure
- 2 Pine boards, 2-by-8-by-42 inches
- 8 dowels, 2-by-40 inches
- Drill bit, 2-inch
- Screw gun
- 16 wood screws, 4-inch
Lay a 42-inch board flat and horizontal. Draw a line across the board that is parallel with one of the 42-inch edges, and 2 inches away. Draw another line in the same manner that is 2 inches away from the opposite edge. Repeat this process on the other 42-inch board.
Draw four lines perpendicularly across the first pair of lines. Space them 10 inches apart. The two outside lines should be 1 inch away from the ends of the board. Repeat this process on the other 42-inch board.
Drill a 1-inch deep, 2-inch diameter hole where each of the lines intersect on both boards. Erase the remaining pencil marks.
Position the two boards on end, 40-inches apart and with the holes facing each other. Insert the dowel ends in the holes and screw through the boards into the dowels.
Set all of your sport balls on the dowels when they're not in use.
