Dear UKC User

Me and my room mate are about to start building a training room and i was wondering what the best wood to use was and also how thick a wood to use.

Also i have bolts to put them in with, do i need to drill a hole first then put them in with T grip on other side or what, sorry am new to training boards, any links with useful help would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Simon

For a woody the best thickness to use is 18mm I'm pretty sure. On mine I used marine ply, although that won't be necessary for yours since yours will be indoors I'm presuming?

You can get M10 T-nuts that you just hammer into the back of the board very cheaply online, drill a 13mm hole in the back and hammer them in. These will then accept 10mm bolts to wack the holds up.

The moon site has a pretty good guide for how to build a decent board and the various supports needed. The pdf is here:

Hope this is helpful

Hi Simon

Loads of useful info on the Metolius web site but you will need to translate the technical info in to english!
