Re: Garage Gym Equipment Design

If you have the room, I'd suggest trying to make a full power cage out of 4x4's (posts), 2x4s (supports), and 1" stainless steel piping (safety pins).

With a bunch of holes drilled into the posts at different heights, you can use this for squats and bench press.

Thanks for your suggestions. I will give it a shot with the cage and see if my carpentry skills are up to par.

Just find the dimensions of a real cage, and use a level

You might need to procure a hole saw bit for your drill.
