Homemade Squat Stands

I thought I would share some pics of the squat stands I made this weekend. I found the plans for them here on the forum (OP was Brandon Ragsdale). I was able to build them for under $40. Pardon the messy garage.

Using his instructions found here:

I was able to make all the cuts and have them assembled in under three hours (using power tools). Somebody skilled could have done it much faster.

They seem to be pretty sturdy. I look forward to testing them.

Do you like the natural look or should I paint em black?

Looks very sturdy.
Depends on your other equipments, but I would paint them black!
Who knows? Who cares?
