Picture of  Bike Wall Mount, SUPER HANDY!

I needed a bike rack and came up with this.

If you want to watch the video check out the ol' youtube:

This was a fun project and it works really well. I use it consistently. The Process of figuring out how to make the hands was great and would consider making some coat hangers that are similar.

Step 1: Tools Needed.

Band saw

Hand saw

Sand paper (Bench top sander is easier for some parts, but not necessary)

Table saw

Dowels x 12




2 Keyhole hangers

Pocket hole jig, or something to make sure the dowels are going in straight

Nice! I'm inspired to make one with a dragon claw design.
Well, I have to hand it to you, this wood be super useful for me.
See what I did there? hand, wood haha nice work

haha! I did see what you did and it was impressive :)
What type of wood for the hands did you use? Doesn't look like 4x4 lumber at big box stores which are usually pressure treated.

thanks dude
This is it! It's everything I need! Awesome project!
Thanks a whole bunch! I appreciate that! You planning to build it?
Yes, when I get a wall to hang it on! I'm in between places, but my bike deserves this.
You make it look so easy, thanks. I wonder about turning that shelf that gaps the bike away from the wall into a drawer or stuff box to hold bike gloves or other essentials that you take on a ride. I think one of those hands could hold a helmet.
Yeah that would be very handy, because at this point I can really only store my bike light and keys up there.
Very cute!

Very simple, very clean. I like it a lot, so I voted for it.

My wood working skills are woefully inadequate, but I do have access to a CNC router, so I might give that a go ... :-)
Johnny Wikk (author)  Alpha_geek6 days ago
Oh yeah, Id love to see an CNC version of this :) Keep me posted on that!

Clever design, looks great. I'm pretty sure a version of this will be added to the tool wall in my shop for holding a sledge hammer or two...

Awesome!, please please send me pics!

very nice instructable, will do this!! Which bandsaw did you use?
Johnny Wikk (author)  The Flying Alpaca6 days ago
I used the budget ryobi one because that is all I had I designed the hands that size because I could fit nothing larger through the saw :)
What do you think is the max weight this will support?
Johnny Wikk (author)  MichaelV2326 days ago
That is a very good question. This design is a bit under-built but I have been hanging my bike on it every day so that is good. I think if the back board was a 1/2" thicker it could support alot more, but then again, it just ned to support a bike.
That’s 5.5” not 5.5’ I think for the block lengths. Need to buy me some tomorrow at HD. This is much sweeter than that ugly grey metal fold-down hook attached to my garage wall that I got from Kmart before they went out of business. I plan to build one.

Love it! Well done, it's nice to see a project that doesn't start "turn on your laser cutter and cnc router"! :-)
