Freestanding Pull-Up Frame Constructed Of Wood (w/ pics)

It's taken just under a week using various designs I found on the internet, I've finally got a 8ft 4in freestanding pull up bar outside.

It's made out of fencing timber (4in x 4in) with galvanised steel brackets and additional timber for bracing. I've used a barbell for the actual bar which is detachable to use as a barbell then can go straight back up as a pull-up bar which is handy.

It is usable in its current state but when I get a little more cash I'm going to nail some decking down across the bottom, which will make a nice little platform to make it easier to jump up, and also add even more weight to the bottom to make it even sturdier.

Here's the facebook album:

Is the barbell just resting in those V cuts? Will that work with a kipping pullup?

The bar is a crappy fitness style bar with a screw on the end. The flange of the bar rests on the inside of the posts and the screw is tight on the outside. Also the V is 3 inches deep. Kipping is fine on it.
