    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 bought a second hand walker for $5. It folds away for storage in the closet. Both my husband and I use it for dips. Best $5 I spent!

    Ha ha, I ended up doing the same thing for a while, but it felt pretty rickety once I was hanging over 60-65 lbs from my homemade dip belt. Ended up getting this little gem, which hangs from my pull-up bar and works like a charm: Amazon.com: Northern Response Universal Dip Station: Sports & Outdoors

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.
