Looks good. Where did you get the iron brackets from? Maybe standard shelving hardware?

They are 20 inch shelving brackets from lowes, cost $8 a piece. And the 24 x 1 inch table top, also from lowes, cost $16. I built this custom one because the pre-made stands would be too big for my bedroom. So this is just the right size and height.

how did u cut such a perfect circle like that? i made mine like a "U" shape because i didnt know how to cut a perfect circle like that and im thinking about making another board for my sister who recently started boxing so i finially got her to try my setup and shes fallen in love but its way to high for her and she stuck standing on a foot stool and she said she wants her own then i can show her things as we both work. sorry little off topic but im just very pumped that shes finally hitting because ive been telling her for over a year to try it and she just wouldnt.

Thanks and I'm glad you finally got under the board yourself. No need for the "Mr" formalities. We're all brothers of the bag here and go by screen names or initials.

looking forward to some video's.

I don't know how he did it, but Lowes sells pine rounds that look very similar. They cost about $10 USD if memory serves.

Yeah Tim is right, I bought it pre-cut like that at lowes for $16. It works great, I'm thinking about building the exact same setup in my garage for the summer
