Thanks for the post necromancy. I'll put together a post on the construction and design of mine in the next few weeks. Need to take some proper photos first...

Looks like Mark..'s username is causing some issues with the image uploader...

Mine is still a working progress.... Needs a side wall which have the timber but haven't had the time.... Takes up half the garage still rom (barely) for my 4x4 and motorbike..I would like to take out the support post on the right and take it right accross the garage however the 4x4 would not fit unless i made a verticle traverse which is not worth the wasted space.....

My only complaint about the woodie is how damm cold it is.... I haven't tried a heater etc but with the garage door not quite flush due to the angle of my drive way it would just be $$$$ and terrible for enviroment... maybe one of those gas burner ones might be more efficient and a python thats just eaten something large size draft protector ; )

re: side walls.

I have found side walls restrict the use of the edges of the steep board. if you have no side wall you can climb right to the edge and flag past it. Do I make sense?

Yeah you make sense.... you mean flagging etc..... and can be safer when throwing sideways for a hold ; )

Agree with WWS. Also add, on the steep bit, having a 4x2 rail to hold onto is a good warm up.

12:06:12 PM
Hmmm. still working on them. Give me a bit.

Small cave in shed. Triangle on left is a door that opens to get behind 30 deg face, door can be climbed on. Got some nice easy face for kiddies and wife.

I love home woody photos. It's always great to see how different people approach the challenge of fitting the most into a small space. It's a real showcase of ingenuity and creativity.

I've been trying to goad butters81 into posting some pics of his woody that we knocked up recently...

Mine is in my office.

Well Populated

great woodie climbing fool, is that a desperate mantle finish at the top?

i've opted for a moonboard so i can have a series of non-rod set problems plus the obligatory campus board and fingerboard, pick up the keys in october so can't post any photo's yet.

6:22:43 PM
it easily could be a mantel top out. right now there is a thin strip of ply with screw-on slopers just top out with hands, will eventually cover the top for practice mantelling.

G'day everyone,

Long time no post been occupied on non-climbing stuff (1 of which you'll guess from what follows).

House is finished, now got my woodie built, have about 1,500 holds but I need guidance on:

a) what length of bolt to get, and
b) an online source for m10 T-nuts plus allen key head bolts

Location, SW Oz.

Thanks in advance

Hey Rod, you going to post pics of woody. Bolts are a bl##dy expensive, find a friend that works in a fabrication/machinery shop, (I scored heaps of bolts for free that way). Length will vary with hold size, 70mm to 200mm covers most. I change most of the holds around every so often and have found a bit of vasaline on the bolt thread helps prevent corrosion.
10:25:04 PM
Thanks for the length suggestions; vaseline - it comes in handy.

My one friend of that ilk (i.e. in a fabrication/machinery shop) is located almost directly on the other side of the planet; I'm trying to spare him the grief. Online shopper recommendations sought, assuming the SPAM filters allow.

I discovered that the imperial equivalent for t-nuts and bolts are cheaper and much more readily available than metric. I have used Keables and Metrobolt.. both Melbourne based.

11:11:37 AM
I have bought bolts from these guys online and they were ok. I don't think they have t-nuts though

must be an enormous hold to use a 200 mm bolt?

Covered, yet in an out door setting it features plush persian rugs, supported by two steel frames tipped back at a rackish 40 degrees, with moon holds to punish for failure. No fixtures into the house required, perfect for renters.

Can we get some more details?
