I was up early this morning and was thinking about building an outdoor pull-up/ring station and began a search on google. After about an hour I had compiled this list of instructions and videos to help in my quest. The links below range from good to ridiculous and everywhere in between (Some are just plain dangerous). I have not tried any of the designs and recommend you use your head before using any of them. After reviewing the list, my best suggestion is that if you suck at building stuff or your unsure about those abilities at all, you might want to buy a bar from a company.
If and when I decide to build my own, I’m gonna make sure it’s very sturdy, uses a lot of metal and more than likely uses welds to hold the thing together (I’m not a welder, I’ll have to hire someone). I might even try the stuff made by speed rail, but haven’t decided yet.
Anyway if you’re Mr. Build it, some of these links might help, while others will make you laugh and wonder how long it was until someone ended up in the hospital.
If you're here by mistake and would rather skip the building process and get to working out already here is a great option for a Pull-Up Bar. The "STUD BAR PULL-UP BAR", heck it must be good, G. Glassman gave it his Kudos' which you can read on their front page. I'm providing a photo so yo you can see it in all its glory.
In addition, if you need more gear to complete your gym read this article.
Well that’s it. I went about four pages back on my Google search and this is what I came up with. It is by no means an exhaustive list on the subject. In fact I excluded some links that only contained instructions and no photos because they were boring and said nothing of value.
If you have any other links I’d love to post them, especially any bars that were welded. Please use common sense if you try any of these plans, because I have not tried them and don’t recommend any of them. Try at your own risk.

What that means is that if you click on the link and later purchase a product from the site I could get paid. You can read a more in depth disclosure here if need be. So why would I tell you this? Well first it’s the law, second it’s the right thing to do and third I ain’t got nothing to hide. Since this site don’t pay the bills by itself, I figure providing a link to product you might want could benefits both of us.
