I'll be honest I would be scared of them splitting and crashing. I think from the looks of it the wood is in a dangerous position to split where the bolts are and to have the bar come down.
I love the simplicity of this rig, but I thought the same thing as Shawn. My fear would be the wood "ripping" where the holes are drilled close together in line with the wood grain.
