Looking for recommendations for a dip stand.

I'm willing to build my own but I would need detailed plans; I'm good at following instructions but no good at design.

I would spend my money on rings and use those for dips. The difference is enormous.

It's not clear to me that I can effectively mount rings in my garage, though I'm considering a couple of different options. I may build an outdoor frame for rings and a climbing rope this spring, but it would only be usable maybe 8 months of the year due to snow/mud.

If you have a pull up bar, you can do it. You just need rings and straps.

OK, I see how I could mount them low enough to do dips. When thinking about rings, I was thinking about the muscle-up and couldn't see how I would have enough space to pull up and then dip without hitting my head. But I could do dips just by hanging them low and bending my knees.

Next question: is there a website that has the cheap nylabone rings?

Jay, I just built some rings for my garage. I used 2 6" nylabone rings from petco-9.99 ea. 2 15' motorcycle tie downs from REI for $15,I mounted them to the ceiling studs by putting in 2 eyebolts (rated for 250lbs each) in a stud. Then I ran a 2' peice of tubilar nylon through each eye and tied them off so I had 2 hanging nylon loops from one stud. Then I joined the loops with a carabiner and that biner also serves as the mounting point for the motorcycle tiedown. Then I moved over one stud and did the same thing for the next ring. This system gives you a little peice of mind in case one anchor fails. Total cost of the system, about $40. I can go from pull-ups to dips to push ups in a few seconds. My garage is 8' feet tall and I'm 6'2", and I have no problems with the height. If you adjust the rings 3/4 of the way up you can even work on some muscle-ups.
