Here is my preferred way to build stackable Olympic Weightlifting Pulling Blocks! These plans can be modified to make any heights you want (stackable or non-stackable).
- 1- 4'x8' Sheets of 3/4" BC Grade Plywood (these can have knots but should be flat)
- 1- 4'x6' Stall/Tractor Mat (I prefer the ones with the flat top
- 8- 8ft long 2x4s
- 3- 8ft long 2x6s
- Pack of 2' Wood Screws (star bit preferred but any will do)
- Impact Drill/Driver
Cuts (have Home Depot or other Hardware Store cut for you - so much easier and less mess!)
- Cut the plywood into 18"x24" pieces (you should end up with 10 total so you will have some extra to help a friend build some blocks)
- Cut all of 2x6s all to 2ft lengths - should end up with 12 - the exact amount you need for a pair of 8" and 4" stackable blocks
- Cut 2 of the 2x4s to 24" lengths and cut the rest of the 2x4s to 18" lengths
- Use the plywood as a template to cut the stall mats (cut with a utility knife with oil - change blades frequently)
- Then use the plywood as the template to lay the wood on like "Lincoln Logs" then screw each layer together
- A 4" block will consist of layers 1-4, an 8" block will consist of layers 1-6. Build a pair of each of these.
