Re: Garage Gym Slope

It really wasn't that tough to do. I will keep ya'll updated how it holds up. But I have a solid start, I'm sure there will be updates down the road.

Re: Garage Gym Slope

Well I'm an engineer so this is the way my brain operates, detail oriented. I could have dealt with the slope, but I would prefer not to worry about it when I'm doing power cleans with 275. But maybe...

Interesting idea with the cardboard. Where did you find that large of sheets, how thick are they? How much do those things cost?

I put a level on top of a 4 ft piece of lumber then raised the downgrade end until it was level and measured the amount that it was raised. Not the most sophisticated way but it gave me a rough...

Re: 10% off Pendlay Bearing Bar and Bumpers

How do the econ v2 bumpers compare to the rogue hi-temps. I've had my eyes on the rogues but this would save me enough to get another pair. Do they have these deals often?

I'm looking to build a platform soon. What type of plywood did you use for yours and did you use any sealant or polyurethane for the top sheets?
