Whether you’re a crossfitter looking to get in more gymnastics skill time or someone looking to outfit your home gym with a new piece of equipment, parallettes are a great option. You can build the rock solid pvc parallettes outlined below for less than $30 in material costs and with less than an hour of your time.
The cost of this project is quite low. I happened to have all the necessary tools on hand as well as the PVC primer and cement (from some previous work on a home sprinkler system). In total, my cost was less than $30. Below you’ll find a complete parts list with what I paid for each piece. I picked these parts up from my local hardware store, though you can easily find them at a big box like Home Depot.
|1 1/2" Schedule 40 PVC Pipe||10 feet||$0.67||$6.70|
|90 Degree Elbow||4||$1.39||$5.56|
With your 10 ft. segment of PVC, you’ll need to cut the following lengths of pipe.
I hope the video is self explanatory, but if you have any questions about how to get these parallettes together, let me know. Good luck!
