Re: My Garage Gym

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?

Re: My Garage Gym

I have made alot of platforms. You can seal it if you want to. Get a hard oak or any hard wood for the top piece.

I used Pine Plywood from Home Depot for the (4) base pieces and then a nice sheet of Oak Plywood that was like $45 a sheet for the top and corners. I didn't secure the middle sheet incase i need to replace it further down the road.

I didn't seal it yet. I think i am going to sand it and apply a stain to it and then i will seal it.

I pretty much followed a video from YT. I'll try and find it and i'll post it. Pretty damn simple.

Re: My Garage Gym

Here is my old set up from last summer. We are currently moving into a new space so this is getting tore down.

Re: My Garage Gym

I used basic CD grade plywood for the 4 base pcs, then a pc of hard birch plywood for the center. I secured mine with drywall screws only, worked great, and did NOT do anything to the top piece, just left it bare. Worked great for 5.5 yrs before I gave to someone else b/c I moved out of state.
