Buff Dudes says:

This looks amazing Azan, great work! Our dad (Duke) just let us know about this video over the weekend. Apologize for not checking it out sooner. How is it continuing to hold up? Again, congrats! Video was well edited too!

Kurt Martin says:

How much was the cost??

Christopher Germany says:

Just built mine, and discovered that if you use a black iron pull-up bar the same width as the inside of the rack, you can just mount it with two floor flanges. Then, you don’t need the front top piece of wood. The bar works in its place!

Dexter McLaughlin says:

Should I paint/stencil the uprights before assembling the rack?

Tom Carusone says:

How much weight can that handle??

Papà Pucy says:

Troppo bassa puoi fare poche cose
