If you're into climbing or bouldering it might be convenient to have a small training possibility at home to hang around a bit and do some pull-ups/combos. Of course you could buy a generic finger board but you will not be able to change the types of holds or the arrangement. And it's much more fun to build something yourself. :)
This homemade board will let you change everything and thus keep it interesting. Enjoy!

----------------------------------------------------------
Material:
- 1 wooden board 
- 3 pieces of hardwood
- As many t-nuts as the number of holds you wish to mount and matching screws
- a set of different climbing holds
- approx. 10 nuts and matching screws
- material to bolt everything to the wall (anchors and matching screws)
- paint

Step 1: Building the board

Cut out the size you want it to be and sand down the edges. Drill as many holes into the board as the number of holds you want to mount. The diameter of the holes should match the screws that you will use to attach the holds. Then let your girlfriend get rid of some aggressions and let her hammer in the t-nuts on the backside of the board.
