I made a speed bag platform and it feels like the one i use at the gym. I only ended up spending like $25 dollars on lumper .So people dont buy those speed bag platforms they sell on the net save your money and make you a home made platform with some lumber.
Here are some pics

The bag itself is extra small-5x7, i put some 2x4's on top of the plywood to keep it more stable i quess that's what makes it look big.

Here's mine. Went to Osh gardens and picked up some wood already cut out in a perfect circles. they're about an 1 inch to an 1 1/2 thick. so i picked up two and slapped them together.

I also picked on some varnish and hooked up the wood to give it a great look and shine.

I hung it using and old heavy bag hanger that i had and it turned out great.
I also picked up the bag and swivel from title.

Haha, don't worry man, yours looks solid.

I couldn't even make that, I'm **** with construction, which is too bad, cause if there's anything I would want at home, just to **** around with, it would be a speed bag, cause honestly, I don't even touch it when I'm at the gym.
