Would it be possible to make some out of 4 x 4's, 2 x 4's and metal pipe that I could put in my room and take outside out ?

Possible? Yes... easy? Maybe ... getting it sturdy enough would be the challenge...

(As a point of reference, by parallel bars are made from scaffolding and sunk 3' underground with about 700kg of concrete...)

I was thinking something sorta like this but not exactly. I want something I can keep in my room.

Has potential, you may want a thicker bar than 1" but that's more personal preference.

Also watch out when measuring the inner side/support legs. You want to make sure you have the right gap for you and aren't forced out too wide :-) .

I made some out of 2" pvc pipes. I can put them in my car, use them inside and outside. Not that cheap to make though. About 200$ here in Canada, anyways.

You can see them in this clip from 1:00 on:

I never thought of making some dip bars for my house out of pvc. Guess I was always worried they would break!
