anyone have any ideas for homemade dip bars?

The park in my town has a set of parallel bars in the playground section, but I'd really like to have a set at home and not have to throw some kids out of the way to work out.

Hi chris-
Dave werner and I have been using gymnastics rings for dips. it just knocks the hell out of your numbers but after these things bar dips look almost trivial. You can do this on the cheap by just getting some playground rings and for an even more cost effective alternative find Tyler ( made some gread "rings" for next to nothing...I even did a muscleup on them!
Hope this helps

I'll post a picture tomorrow, if I remember.
PVC Pipe- about 8 inches x2, schudle 80, 3/4 in. approx
Hose- Any type of thick hose will work. I'm using some type of boat hose, but a thick section of gardend hose would probably work even better.
I'll put up the pics, that will explain it better than I can.
