Kudos, I wanted to build a free standing pull up bar for my home, but I was worried about making it strong enough, so my design was more than a little heavy. It ended up being easier / cheaper to buy a power tower. Yours looks great!

Forgive my ignorance, but exactly do you do with a Swedish wall? I understand and like the pull up attachment.

And welcome to LJs!

Jason,
Here is a video of a workout on Swedish wall />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvNfQsaNouQ
It is a great tool for exercise and very common in Europe. You don’t see it often in the US.

Thanks Viktor. I went to youtube and did a search. I saw the same video. lol!
I’d have to start slowly for fear of landing on my head :).

they are very common in the scools here in Denmark I think nearly all scools have them in gym.
on both side of the wall in the hole length they are used to have heavy exercise at
we call them ribberne becuorse there is so many of them
