    ^ Total cost was around <$200, assuming you have the tools.

    My fiance built us one like this when we first got into Stronglifts. Like you said, the cost was around $200 for the lumber and hardware. It works great! Mine doesn't have the pull-up bar between the front uprights, though. :(

    Nice! My husband just built me one for my birthday! He told me that if we have an earthquake the safest place in our house is the power rack! :laugh:

    Nice... a lot more 'polished' than mine, though the total cost of mine was about £2 on a couple of boxes of screws (the rest was wood and metal I had lying around.)

    Currently trying to work out if I want to make one in my motorhome as I'm working 250 miles away and there doesn't seem to be any decent local gyms :( (but a lot of weight to carry around for the weights.)

    That looks awesome! I will have to show the hubby, we were just discussing the possibility of him building me a squat rack, this would kick butt!
