full time metal fabricator/artist

Made a pull-up bar by my workbench

image

There was a 1.25″ pipe laying around I’ve been intending on turning into a pull up bar for a few months now.
I took a piece of 1/4″ steel plate from a previous art project that had jagged edges and I thought would look good for the base plate.
I drilled out 5 holes in the plate steel, then took the plate to the bench grinder and smother all the edges, then I repeated the process with a wire wheel the make everything smooth to the touch.

I used 5″ brass screws and mounted the bar about 8′ off the ground.

Now to work on my reps, picking up steel isn’t exactly light work..

Thanks for reading.
More to come.
