I should have just done it when I built my pullup station. But when my son was 5 years old I didn't have the foresite to realize he would one day need a rack.  :-[

You have the tools and skills to build that?

I'd rather just buy one.

This is Hard to beat..

Our Gym has one and I squat in it every week. I may even have a coupon code for it as well. Maybe if it's still good.

We had a couple of those exact style racks at a gym I used to go to. They worked great.

If you enjoy the building part, I've seen some really solid home built racks.

I have this one and it has served me very well. Fitness Gear Full Rackhttp://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=78988716&ab=TopNav_Exercise_StrengthEquipment_RacksCages&cp=4413986.12598195&categoryId=12598202

The price isn't bad for what you get. My only regret, honestly, is I would've opted for the Half rack given my space. http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=23773346&ab=TopNav_Exercise_StrengthEquipment_RacksCages&cp=4413986.12598195&categoryId=12598202
