  1. Well done!
    I got fed up with not having a creeper to but didn't have the time get so creative and just threw some casters on an old cushion from a discarded weight bench. It's not as sweet as yours but I plan to build something like yours when it falls apart on me. The only problem is, it's been several years of not falling apart yet, so, I may end up having an ultra sweet one and the one I have now as a spare. I also threw some wheels on a small (about 12" round) tray to be a mobile tool holder and it has held up unbelievably well to.

  2. Add a pillow with some Velcro for easy removal. Bc working under a car for a few hours and holding your neck up, kills the mood. lol

  3. I made one by accident. I took ply wood and took wheels out of a old rolly chair and drilled a hole so they can fit in. cost me the price of free.

  4. Hey bob, i remember watching your shoretrooper helmet video a while back and you had mentioned in that video how you might even make the entire suit, did you ever get around to doing that?

  5. Hello Bob good
    video I was wondering when will you get the second part or the second light saber model

  6. Could you please do more projects with epoxy? I just started wood working, and I'm making a desk top from pallet wood. It's pretty uneven so I'm considering coating it in epoxy to make it fully smooth (it'll be used primarily for art), and I'd love to see more videos on how to work with it. It would be really neat to see something like a "floating" table top or desk top, where wood or stone or something is fully encased in the epoxy to look like it's floating.

  7. Looks great! How about adding a low cost Bluetooth speaker near the head to play tool sound effects to hide the fact that you're actually napping with the noise cancelling headphones on

  8. Hey Bob, hello from Russia
    Made subtitle translation to russian. I hope it will help you expand and develop)
    I wonder how many russian viewers actually watch your videos…

  9. You've inspired me to try more things instead of sticking with hot glue an foam is channel has really changed the way I look at building

  10. Everything must be so easy when you're genius, because whenever you need something that you don't have or don't even exist, you can always make it by yourself! I really wish to be a genius for 1 day just to know how it feels like😞😞😞

  11. Next time use rounded head bolts for the wheels at the top( as well as a top plate for strength so the wood don't crack over time). I would hate to have to position myself while down or roll over on those bolts on my shoulder or knee. Ouch.

  12. I like it. Word of caution, if you have long hair like I do, when it gets caught in the wheels it's painful. The wheels being spaced further out to the sides would help that. Alway braid hair before using. But I would also extend the frame at the head out 6". This should stop hair from hanging over the top and getting wheeled over 🤕

  13. Great Video – thanks for the clear visual step by step and explanations behind your design. I want to make a creeper to use under my mobile home and your video gave me ideas on how to proceed. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  14. Just an idea, what if instead of using black spray paint, you used spray on truck bed liner, so that the finish would be a little more rugged.

  15. do a hoverbord that has a drone that can release with a touch of a button
    can also do a shout out to my chanel izak baxendale

  16. Nice but cost more than £20 when on E bay plenty of cheap boards. Although you can add bits and bobs to home made one.

  17. Looks good. Recognize that using larger wheels(but preserving low clearance) is a huge improvement. Little wheels will be braked by even small obstructions, such as sand, dried mud, and cracks in the concrete. Bigger. soft wheels might even roll over an electrical cord.

  18. cool proj though the parts where the wheels connect with the rest of the thing need to be reinforced like a piece of steel that goes through the bottom to reduce the effect of the user's weight on it. i'm well over 200lbs and i worry that after a few uses, it will crack and eventually break. i mean, aside from my own body weight, the extra movement or work done also add stress to those joints.

  19. The flooring is bad in my garage/shop/ storage space but I really want castors you should do a cement slab video, or a mini skate park ramp…

  20. The foam also cuts well with an electric kitchen knife…you know the kind you would use to carve a turkey. Saw that on Mythbusters once and have done it a few times since!

  21. Very cute but you missed out the most important part: the correct dimensions. After you had finished the creeper and it looked so cool, when you laied on it was WAY TOO SHORT!

  22. Trouble with creepers is so many shop floors are not perfectly flat. They're often used sloped and segmented & often chipped or cracked. Little wheels often get caught on every little thing you cross. The quest for low drag also has resulted in really low suspensions that even without a creeper you can't slide under heavy duty truck axles. Unless you're Reed from the fantastic 4.

  23. Really good video and job bro i like to make things too but it was easier for me to buy one at harbor freight for $18.99 but good job

  24. I must be the worlds worst when it comes to working with wood so I've always avoided DIY like the plague, however after watching this I decided to give it a try. I kept looking back at the video as I attempted each stage of building the creeper and took my time as I went along.   Wow ! I've actually done it exactly as shown minus the lights as I will add them at a later date. Its  a solid structure that looks good and will last for years. Thanks Bob for helping me believe in my own ability.

  25. This was fun to watch and I liked it for a few reasons but working with wood I can see this having some clunky weight. How heavy is this creeper?
