When are you going? Can I either tag along or can you pick up enough materials for 2 sets and I'll hit you back?
probably won't be able to do it for a few weeks. i should brainstorm and draw up an adequate set of plans before i actually purchase any materials. maybe next weekend we'll all have a brainstorm and wine drinking get-together
I've been thinking about performing this for years, but simply have not gotten around to it yet. I've seen some good plans for pvc parallettes online, and so I was thinking about only using 2" pvc for the legs and making them long/tall enough to dip on. Pvc is extremely affordable and unexpectedly powerful. seems like I must create a home depot run.
Make sure you use schedule 40, which is heavier and stronger. It would be too bad to put all that work into homemade dip bars and have them break on you.
