Re: 24" vertical poles on a DIY pull up bar?

Yes. You should get lag screws....and washers.

My wife uses a box placed just to the side under our pullup bar to reach it.

You don't need the pipe cement but it wouldn't hurt. When I put mine together I put the pipes in a vice and used some huge pliers to make it as tight as humanly possible. I recommend doing that as well. Since just hand tight will have a tendency to loosen with kipping.
