Step 1: Mark the Beams
Take the beams and mark a cross 6 cm from the top.
Step 2: Drill a Hole
Drill a hole all the way through the beam where the cross is marked.
Step 3: Attach the First Beam
Find a nice spot where you want to work out.
Knock the first iron pin in the ground using the hammer and the short piece of wood.
“If you don’t have access to the iron pins, you can buy longer beams, dig a hole and attach them with concrete.”
screw the first beam to the iron pin using the hex screws and the ratchet wrench. The hole in the top of the beam must be facing the location of your second beam.
Step 4: Attach the Second Beam
Knock the second iron pin in the ground whit a distance of 80 cm from the first beam (if you have a longer pipe you can place the second iron pin from a longer distance).
Just like in the previous step you attach the beam to the iron pin using the hex screws and ratchet wrench.
Step 5: Attach Pipe
Take the galvanized pipe, put it through the two top holes of the beams and attach the two end fittings.
Step 6: You Are Done
You are done
Now you can enjoy working out in the garden.
And your kids can play with it to.
