Wood vs Steel

I have a pretty good idea for a squat rack, pull up bar and dip station using either wood or steel. Seems that the price of steel square stock and wooden 6x6 post is about the same. I have access to a full welding and machine shop so all that work is free. Which would you prefer? Seems alot of home made stuff is of wood so I was not sure if some just like to make there gear of wood.

Another question, since I do have access to the fabrication equipment and only have to purchase materials what else would you like in a home gym on the cheap? I ask because I am not really sure on what else I should make.
