...have famously been training on a wooden offwidth setup in their basement. Does anyone know how to build such a setup? I'd like to, but don't have the faintest idea...

Made clicky.

I'd say get some good stiff plywood to use as a crack surface, then build your frame like you were building a wall, maybe with a smaller distance between joists. Mostly make it steep, like a roof, and make it deep enough that you can actually get a full heel-knee bar in there.
