How to Build a Homemade Chin Up Bar for Basement Rafters?

by Markus

What's the best way to build a homemade chin up bar? I want to build my arms with pull ups yet don't want to buy one of those flimsy doorway chin up bars...they look liable to break, and I am a big guy!


My gym is also in the cellar, so plans to build a homemade chin up bar for basement rafters would be cool.

Thanks.
