Make a set of parallettes for gymnastics and strength training.

Step 1: Make Plywood

I had a lot of 1/8" face board and decided to turn it into plywood of varying thickness. First, cut the sheets down to desired sizes.

Step 2: Glue

Glue and clamp the sheets together.

Step 3: Trim

Trim all the pieces to uniform blocks.

Step 4: Posts

Attach the posts to the bases.

Step 5: Drill

Drill holes to accommodate the bars. Insert the dowels and secure with a screw.

Step 6: Feet

Glue imitation leather to the bottoms of the feet to prevent slipping. Trim the edges.

Step 7: Finish

Add a finish to the wood.
