weekend DIY GHD project

it was raining this weekend so I puttered indoors and built myself a GHD. I still need to add the padding and I will probably send it out for powder-coating. But I am pretty happy with how quickly it came together and how sturdy it is considering I went pretty barebones with the structure and built it from scrap that was lying around the shop. I wanted it to be easy to dismantle, and fairly lightweight. I am not a 250# football player like most commercial GHDs seem to be built for.
