How To Build A Balance Beam




What do you think about this video?

Robert Cunliffe: I made this beam for my daughters birthday. This was really helpful and your instructions and material details were really helpful! The only power tool I have is a drill driver and I just used a hand saw. I bought some quick clamps like yours and it would have been difficult without these. The hardest bit was getting the carpet stuck down firmly and accurately and I ended up testing out a few different glues first - I couldn't find your carpet glue, and I actually used a spray-on contact glue which seems to have worked well. After buying the timber from a yard I was surprised to find that the dimensions weren't what I asked for - 1 by 4 was actually 3.5 inches wide and a bit shallower - apparently 'normal' for finished timber pieces? Anyway, thanks for your great video!

Natasha Boursaw: that works its awesome it like a real one

Emma Lexi: Thank you my grandpa is making me one of these and it helped out so much so you should make more gymnastic stuff

skylar belczyk: Would this hold doing higher level skills, like if u were to jump on the end would it stay on the footers? ps this is awesome thanks 

Grant C: Just made one for my daughter for Christmas. She loved it! Thanks for posting!!

Kent Laabs: This guy was spot on! Great post with just the right amount of info. I used a naugahyde covering that went on well with 3m Super 77 spray adhesive. Still used some carpet on the base for a snug fit. Great Post!

Jamyra Williams: Can u make me one please

Steph1316: Thanks for showing how you made it, my daughter's getting into gymnastics too and we're definitely going to have to make this for her! 

wldock: Awesome hollow lightweight design! My mom is giving my ten year old daughter a mat for X-Mas and asks if i could make a beam for her. She sent me this design and i think it will be great. Thank you for sharing!

Alvin Wynn: $59 and a few hours and up pops a balance beam, so little waste material. Thanks

Amaya maitland: I Want dad to make me this but hell probably just buy me one 

Cindy Nastasha: +FatTire75 can you make a gymnastics bar? I need a gymnastics bar to practice at home....... :(

koreyg1000: Looks like it took 6 yuengling's or so to make this, judging by the empties in the background.lol

Yankee Bob: I am working on one for my granddaughter. There was a question earlier about screw sizes, but I didn't see an answer. Also, I don't see carpet like yours on the Lowes site, do you recall what it was called? Due to storage considerations, I am making two 5 foot sections with a double 2x3x6' connecting core so that the beam can be disassembled when not in use.

Liam McPoyle: Thanks for this.

so so random: How exspensive is it? 

Jennifer Shaun: She so spoiled

There's one thing you forgot to add to the supply list...... how many beers does it take thru out the project? Started with a Killian and ended with a 6+ pack on the bench at the end.....I just need to know so I keep my husband well stocked on supplies....lol!

Lexi Ulloa: Could you make a beam with a full piece of wood?

sam mommi: I am working on the same thing for my daughter thanks a ton!!

Mike Madal: I followed your design to the tee and it came out perfect. One thing I'm unsure of- did you glue the carpet to the foam as well as the sides? I glued the foam to the wood and the carpet to the foam, tomorrow I will glue the sides. Thanks for sharing this, its certainly the best design I found. Giving it to my daughter for Christmas.

Maribel Martinez: I love it
