Balsa Limbo: How to build a Limbo Bar Holder

Materials:

  • 2  1 ½” x ½” x 48” strips of poplar from Home Depot, Item # 227128, SKU 1993116995
  • Glue (use glue of choice)

Tools required:

  • Hand saw
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

 

  1. Cut the poplar strips as follows: Strip 1 = 4 x 6” & 4 x 4 ½” pieces; Strip 2 = 4 x 3”, 4 x 2” & 1 x 21” pieces. The 21” piece is the Limbo bar.
  2. Apply a layer of glue to the underside of the 2nd piece and lay on top of the base 6” piece. Repeat this process so that each stack consists of two 6” pieces, two 4 ½” pieces, two 3” pieces and two 2” pieces. See below.
  3. Set up the 2 stands 18” apart. The end of the bar should be flush with the outside edge of the stand.
