DIY 3-in-1 WOOD PLYO BOX for $35! {Fitness/Tutorials}

BOX2I have been wanting to post about this DIY for FORRRREVVVVVERRRRR&#;but life happens and I could never bribe Jeff enough to get him to write down the tutorial for this amazing PLYO BOX!&#;until the other day!! (the bribe included chocolate milk shakes and other things not appropriate to blog about&#;so we will just keep it at that! mmmkay)

Without further ado&#;in the words of my amazingly hot and talented husband, here is the step by step tutorial for your 3-in-1 wood plyo box!

Of all the DIY projects that I’ve done this has to be one of the hardest projects! It was worth it though because it serves a purpose and I saved over $ by making me own.What makes this style of box different than simply cutting pieces of wood and building a box is that the pieces interlock with each other creating a nice strong box that doesn’t require any interior bracing or framework.So let&#;s begin (hopefully everything makes sense).What makes this box special is that you have 3 different height options 20”, 24”, & 30”.

You’ll notice in the pictures that I made 5 boxes.I actually made them for my brother in-law to use in his CrossFit gym.CrossFit Edify

Tools Needed

1.Table Saw & or Skill Saw

2.Nail Gun (16 gauge @ 2” long)


4.Jig Saw

5.Wood Glue

6.Tape Measure/Framing Square

Detailed Step List

1.Purchase a sheet of 4’x8’ ¾” Plywood.I got mine from Home Depot for around $ Sheet will make 1 Ply Box

2.You’ll need the following pieces cut at the different dimensions.

a.2 – 20”x24”

b.2 – 20”x30”

c.2 – 24”x30”

3.Once you’ve got your pieces cut you’ll need to cut out the notches so the sections can interlock with each other.When you cut out the notches make sure you cut back the same thickness as the plywood.Don’t just cut back the ¾”, you need to measure.As for how long your notches should be, measure 8” from the theoretical edge of the wood then cut out the section with a jig saw.Follow the picture of the three different sized pieces to get your pattern and an idea of what each piece needs to look like.Disclaimer: this is the hardest part so take your time with the measurements and the cutting.Following the pattern from the picture and it will work.

4.Once the pieces are cut and notches are ready you can now assemble. Start by laying one 24”x30” on a flat surface.Then apply some glue along the edges where the other pieces will join.Now start putting the puzzle together by starting with the sides then finishing with the top.I would put only 1 or 2 nails in each section until I have all the pieces together.You’ll have a few gaps and need to put your muscle into it to get it to squeeze and fit together just right.Once your satisfied you can then finish nailing the box together.

5.Once my box was finished I took my router to all the edges to give a nice rounded edge.

6.One convenience I put on the boxes were openings on the side for you hands.To do these I drew out the size I wanted, drilled a hole for the jig saw blade to fit in and then cut out the section.You can do this step at any time.Just make sure you do it on the 20”x24” piece. I then sanded out the inside of the hand holds and sanded all the edges one more time to ensure they were rounded and smooth! You don’t want abrupt edges when you are using these puppies! That just calls from some serious shin injuries!

Plyo Box: How to build a box jump – Garage Gym Builder

Plyo Box Jumps are a fantastic exercise for improving your balance, coordination, agility, and explosive power. They are also a great way to burn calories. Having a Plyo box in your home gym is a smart move. The poly box hardly takes up any room but adds a whole new training dimension to your workout space.

Buying a plyo box, however, can be expensive for what it really is, a few pieces of plywood put together. For a perfect, multi-level wooden box, you are going to be paying well more than a hundred bucks. But there is another option; make your plyo box. In this article, we will provide you with a complete step-by-step guide to building your own wooden 3-in-1 plyo box. You will end up with jumping heights of 20, 24 and 30 inches with this plyo box.

Plyo Box Workout

Here’s What You’ll Need

The wooden 3-in-1 plyo box plans that we will follow allows you to build your plyo box from a single 48 x inch sheet of three quarter inch plywood. Any grade of plywood will work. In addition to the wood, you’ll need some screws (inch coarse thread general purpose), an electric or hand saw, drill and screwdriver. You’ll also need a drill or impact driver with a bit that matches the screws and a inch straight-edged ruler.

Here’s How To Put It All Together

  • Lay out your board so that it is landscape. You will now mark your cuts with a ruler and pencil. The first cut line will be 20 inches in from the edge and straight down to the end of the board. From that line mark the next point exactly 19 inches further along and down. The third mark is inches further across and down. It will give you four different board sections that are 20 inches, 19 inches, inches and inches wide.
  • Come back to the first inch wide section. Come down half way (24 inches) and draw a line across from the edge to the inch line. In the second section, there is no horizontal line. In the third section of the board, which is your first inch wide section, come down inches and draw a horizontal line. Then come down another 11 inches and draw another horizontal line. It will leave you with another inch section at the bottom of this section. For the last part of the board, come down 24 inches, which is halfway, and draw a horizontal line. You now have all of your cutting lines.
  • Cut out all of your boards and lay them out on the floor. You will end up with two boards that are 24” x 20” which will be the end caps of the box. The side walls of the box will be comprised of the four remaining large boards. The inch piece that remains will form a cross brace.
  • Use the four large boards to build the outer wall structure of the box. Lay one of your end caps on the ground and make your box around that. You may want to get someone to help you hold the sides in position as you fix your screws along the edges of the boards. Use inch coarse thread general purpose screws with a bugle head. If you have the walls appropriately assembled, the end caps will sit flush.
  • Place the end cap on the top of the box. Now take a piece of 2 x 6 timber and place it on the end cap to trace the rectangular outline of a handle. Place the 2 x 6 a few inches in and down from the edge and trace around it with your pencil. Now take a drill with a 5/8th inch bit and drill a hole in each corner of the rectangle you have just drawn. Then use a jigsaw to cut along the lines to cut out your handle shape. Be sure to wear goggles when operating the jigsaw. Repeat this process on the other end cap to provide a matching handle hold on the other side of the box.
  • Screw down one of the end caps, using three screws on each side of the board.
  • Take your remaining inch piece of bracing board and place it right in the middle of the box so that it comes out to the half-way point. Place four screws evenly from the outside of the board to go into the inch cross brace. You also need to place screws along the top edge of the cross brace that meets the end cap. The end cap that fits the cross brace will be the top of the box, and you should mark it as such. It will help to transfer the load when you are jumping into the top of the box.
  • Place the find end cap onto the box and screw it into place.
  • Sand the box to smooth it out and get rid of any sharp edges and your homemade wooden plyo box is done.

And That’s Basically it!

In about an hour, if you’re already used to building stuff, you should be able to construct this 3-in-1 wooden plyo box, which, is a great addition to any garage gym, as well as a great way to burn calories.

How to Make a DIY Plyometric Box

A plyometric box is a great addition to any home gym. This DIY plyo box has three different heights ( 24 inch, 20 inch, 16 inch ) and is made from one sheet of plywood. I decided to customize this DIY plyo box with Krylon SUPERMAXX All-In-One Black Hammered Finish and Krylon SUPERMAXX All-In-One Banner Red that I picked up at Walmart. The paint job turned out great and the hammered finish is super durable.

Measure and start cutting!

The first step for building DIY plyo box is to measure the panels for the plyometric box. Download the free Plyometric Box Plans here for the exact measurements. Put marks at the measurements provided and then use a straight edge and pencil to connect the marks so you have a nice straight line to follow with your circular saw.

Plyometric box tutorial
Cut each panel using a circular saw or table saw. Follow the line as closely as possible so your panels line up when it comes time to put the DIY plyo box together.

How to make a plyometric box
After making all the cuts I had some plywood leftover that I'll be able to use on another project.

leftover plywood
Layout the panels and sand the them

I cut a total of nine pieces. Six of the panels will form the box and the other three boards will be used as re-enforcement inside the DIY plyo box. Sand each panel with an orbital sander and grit paper. At this time you can also cut the handles for the box. Decide which 2 panels you want to add the handles to. They'll need to be off center since the re-enforcement is going to be centered inside the DIY plyo box. I forgot to cut the handles so I cut them once the box was assembled(shown later in this post).

plyometric box instructions
Assemble the DIY plyo box

Add wood glue around each panel as you assemble the box together.

best plyometric box plans
Use a drill with a 1/8 inch drill to drill pilot holes prior to adding screws. This will prevent the wood from splitting.

Continue around each side of the box. I used four of the 2 inch long wood screws at each corner.

Slightly countersink each screw.

Make re-enforcement for the DIY plyo box

I decided to add re-enforcement inside the DIY plyo box. While it may not be entirely necessary, I do recommend adding it for extra strength. Draw a line down the center of the re-enforcement and then offset each smaller panel. One smaller panel will go on the left side of the line, and the other will go on the right side. This will allow you to add screws from each side.

By offsetting the smaller panels you'll be able to add screws for each panel.

Glue prior to attaching the bottom panel of the box.

Add bottom panel

Attach the bottom panel with 2 inch long wood screws.

Add re-enforcement

Slide the re-enforcement into place. I glued each end and slid it into the box. If it is a snug fit you will not need to use any screws.

The re-enforcement is in place and has a snug fit. Once the glue cures it won't budge.

Secure the final panel to close up the DIY plyo box.

Sanding and finishing touches

Use grit sandpaper to smooth out the boards and remove rough edges.

Sanding plyometric box
Fill holes (Optional)

You could fill the screw holes with putty if you'd like. I did not, but wanted to show that you can if you want to. If you do choose to fill the holes make sure to sand away excess once it cures.

plans easy plyometric box
I drew a 1 1/4 inch by 4 inch box as a reference for cutting out handles. I'd recommend cutting out the handles prior to assembling the box. I forgot to do this earlier so am doing it now. You can cut out the handles by using a drill bit to create a small hole big enough for the blade of your jigsaw or for a router bit.

It's time to paint!

Start customizing your DIY plyometric box with paint. Coat the diy plyo box evenly. I started by painting the entire box with Krylon SUPERMAXX All-In-One in Banner Red Spray Paint. Make sure to wear a respirator for this process and to ventilate the area as best as possible.

Painting a plyometric box
Here is a look at the first side after 2 coats.

The first color is complete! I chose to use the red first since the hammered black has texture and is more opaque.

Measure 1 1/2 inches in from each side you'd like to add the hammered paint to. Use painters tape to mask off the border. Make sure the spray paint is completely cured before taping over it.

how to make exercise equipment
I decided to leave 2 panels completely red and so I taped off those sides.

Painting a plyometric box
Paint the panels using Krylon SUPERMAXX All-In-One Black Hammered Finish. I used two coats.

Let the black paint start to dry for about 10 minutes and then remove the tape. I've found that the lines come out super clean when you remove the tape before the paint has completely dried.

Bewilderment and confusion. I sat for a long time thinking about what else to expect from this strange and amazing woman. Without coming up with anything intelligible, I hid the women's underwear in my pocket and went to settle in my new. Apartment.

Julia was a rather slender girl, daddy up to the chest, with light brown hair covering her neck, loose and held. Only on her forehead by a bow tie. Dad was somehow lively, asked something from his daughter and at the same time constantly looked around. Yulia was kind of sad, she looked at her feet and only shook her head at all the dad's questions: up and down.

- yes, left - right - no.
