I was in a local shop and came accross this nice wood training/hang/pullup board made by Metolius.
http://www.metoliusclimbing.com/...training_boards.html

Thought it would make a good project...and I happen to have a couple of nice aged cedar chunks I've been trying to use up. I had to buy a couple router bits that I didn't have in order to make the finger holds...but its still half the price of a new one.

The one in the middle I bought to use as a templet...then I returned it, yea-I felt bad.




Finished product...not stained. My buddy got the other. The wood feels good on the hands. Pleanty of holds to choose from including a couple on the top and back that aren't pictured.
Very happy with how it came out...now comes the bigger project...working on those tiny holds.

Thanks! After using it for a few days now...I think I'll be adding a couple holds in the near future. I wouldn't mind a coupe holds diagonally in the top corners...

Hi! ..I have been thinking of doing the same thing, and was searching for pics and I came across your post.

I don't have the means of buying the hangboard and returning it (I live outside the U.S and it is complicated enough to buy something and shipping it to Venezuela), I was wondering if you could help me with dimensions of the pockets, specially the depths. Is it possible for you to give me an approximate of the dimensions you used?

Thanks!! =)
