Question wtd: wall mounted pull-up bar plans

Can anyone point me to a thread showing plans for a wall-mounted pull-up bar? I'm in an older apartment building and all my door-frames have glass-plane windows above them. Likewise, I'm not keen to go drilling into the oak frames to mount a bar in the frame. I have a stud finder and was thinking that it would be easiest to mount the bar on the wall in my spare/workout room.

Re: wtd: wall mounted pull-up bar plans

Check out http://www.studbarpullup.com/ (wfs). A friend of mine has one installed in his apartment's garage. It's rock solid and was quite simple to install. Coach Glassman is quoted as owning one also (see the site). I don't have one, instead I've concocted one using galvanized steel pipe and some monstrous metal brackets I found at a garage sale. Although I saved $100 as compared to purchasing the studbar, if you can spare the cash I recommend going the simple, pre-built, 15 minute installation way. Plus, it's called the studbar. Chicks'll dig that.

I believe those are ceiling mount only. I'm really only looking for something that can be wall mounted and preferably DIY.
