Re: diy wooden squat rack with pull up bar

The Rogue W-4 has a similar design and costs $565. I would guess the materials for this DIY version would be about 40% that or less. He'll save a significant amount.

Gilles is nowhere close to a 400# squat. The weakest part of this system may be a DIY J-cup. Hmm. Now you've got me curious. I want to do a weight test on my DIY squat system...
