the bag can still be used like a heavey beag if you remove the cords, make it bigger and chain it at the top....im not sure how much leather cost or what kind of stuff to put on the inside but seems it could be done

Um...maybe I missed something....How do you attach it to the floor? I rent so it's not like I can drill an eye hook into the concrete. I found some awsome medium wight vinyl in a snakskin printh that I had no glue as to what I would make but now I know. presuming I figure out how to attach it. lol
I guess I could use something like a concrete umbrella base.hmmm....
nice job though. I love crafty boys.



I have a bunch of vintage linens for trade. Looking for neat halloween fabrics, day of the dead stuff, star wars stuff.

the floor connection can be done this way. Hook the bungee cord to a 20 lbs weight. That's heavy enough to resist the forces from the bag.

If your going to put some kind of eye bolt in you ceiling. make sure you locate  the joist, and screw the eye bolt into it. The joist is the structural member that holds the ceiling up.  This way you know you've got a sturdy connection. You can use a stud finder to locate the joists. They usually run 16" on center. This means they are 16" apart from each other.

let me know how it goes

YOUR CAR IS AMAZING!!! what year is it, cuz it effin rocks!? i have to have it lol. awesome idea on making a punching bag. i agree, they're a wicked work out plus they're really good for letting out the stress lol.  Tongue

Why don't you do some thing productive and kill yourself because standing here next to you is beginning to make me look like an idiot. And trust me, I'm capable of looking like an idiot without your assistance.

aside from the punching bad being nice. how baout that car!? I am guessing 70's  due to the huge window in the back. and i am not going to compliment on it just yet though. cant see the rear end or front, it might be a ford. which would be a hell of a mistake of a compliment.. lol sorry if its a ford Wink

kinda looks like a charger, but seems not big enough more of a pony car.

please give info
oh and what did you do to the interior?!! Please say you kept it original

All I can say is *man, you know what you are doing!* Let me see if I have this straight. . .

  • You hang out on a forum that is pretty much saturated with clever females from all corners of the earth
  • Your li'l display pic features you and *a cat* ("awwww, It's a guy who loves crafting and animals!")
  • With your post you include a photo of you, shirtless, sweaty, in front of some sweet vintage car
  • Nice work Grego.
. . .All under the guise of *crafting*!? Yeah, you definately know exactly what you're doin.

Nice Work, Grego.

I SOOOO need one of those at my house!!! (headache bag, car, boy...I'm not too picky).

Grego, you look vaguely familiar...Are you really from Toronto or "Toronto" as in the GTA?  I grew up in Brampton. now live in Bolton and work in Thornhill...have you ever spent any amount of time in any of them?  Sorry, I'm not trying to be creepy.  Maybe you have one of those familiar looking faces?

My my...aren't we a knotty little girl?
