Instead he ‘makes it as he goes!’
1- HAMMERED RUST-OLEUM spray paint
I fitted mine to work for both of us, so you’ll need to take the time to adjust it to your right height. Once I figured out the correct height I cut the posts and then fastened the 2×4’s to the post to create the “truss” structure.
Remember that you get your strength from cross bracing (triangles).
I then drilled 1-1/4” sized holes to accommodate the pipe (Your pipe needs to have an outside diameter of 1-1/4”).
I then bolted the wood supports into my ceiling trusses with wood lag screws/bolts.
I used two bolts for each support structure.
After getting the supports fastened I then threaded the bar through the holes and drilled smaller holes horizontally through the post and pipe.
I then ran long bolts through both the post and pipe and tightened them down to hold the bar tight and snug.
Finally, I added a couple coats of HAMMERED spray paint to decrease rust and help with the grip on the pipe.
We have had the pull-up bar for almost 3 months now and it has been able to handle my 225 pound husband swinging back and forth on it pretty much every night!!
These little additions have been great for our gym!
