Rebound Board

Fuzzy's board is beautiful. A real work of art.

But for the less Carpentarily or Router challenged crowd, the rebound board does not have to be round in shape. The speed bag "rebound area" is "circular" around the center point (swivel attachment). the bag will create it's own circle, but the board, larger than the bag can be of any shape.

So, if you have a thick, square piece of wood, and no saws or routers to cut with, your board could still work. Just align it with the hanging bracket system and put a swivel in the middle. The bag will define it's circle.

I once saw a picture of a gym with a long overhang on one wall, much like a 16 foot long sheet of plywood, with swivels and speed bags attached every few feet away from each other. 6 or 7 people could stand and hit speed bags at the same time. (unfortunately, each bag could not be individually adjust for height.)

Here is a similiar "long row of speed bags" set up. Row of speed bags1 and Row of 7 speed bag stations
(* bags seem way too high for most of these guys....)

and notice in this picture, the swivel are attached to the low ceiling. ( not bag bag behing this boxer, and look at the "rebound" pattern of the bag, which has worn off the ceiling stain) pugilistica historical picture

Here's my home made board for my basic Everlast speed bag setup. After watching Alan's speed bag video and reading the Speed Bag Bible, I was all ready to get some 3/4" plywood and put on top of my board like he did. I got to thinking that I had a bunch of cherry out in the garage, so what I did was plane 3 or 4 six foot pieces down to about 7/8" or so and then ripped them so they were 1 1/2" wide. Then, I cut them all to somewhere around 30" in length and glued up the wide sides together in three sets each about 10" with pipe clamps. After they dried, I ran each of them through the planer to make them evenly smooth and clean up the glue. Then, I glued the three 10" pieces togther and let them dry. I then sanded the board down nice and smooth on both sides and using a big compass, I made the circle as large as I could, which I think was about 29". Then I took my router and used a 1/8" roundover on the top and bottom. After that was done, I sanded it all down again with 150 and 220 grit sandpaper and put a couple of coats of Linseed oil on it. It really made a difference, however, my problem is now the frame flexes a little with my big 11x8 bag, hence the reason I decided to get the adjustable Ringside setup. I'm in the process of redoing the drum and mounting boards since I'm going to put it outside, I want the wood to be well protected. I'm using marine grade polyurethane, and am probably going to put about 5 coats on it, which should be more than enough. I may put more on the top of the drum though since it's going to take the worse of it. Here are the pictures, hopefully I'm doing this right:

Here is the Ringside set up that I'm in the middle of working on. I sanded down all the wood and am putting 5 coats of marine grade polyurethane on. I'll probably put on extra coats on the top of the drum since it will take the most abuse from UV and rain:

The cherry looks fantastic. Thanks for writing up how you made it... one day I hope to be able to do that too... I'm short most every piece of equipment I would need though.
