My first woody! So excited... Yep, it's in my living room. My boyfriend is pretty dope for supporting this one...


Does anyone think they could give me some advice on adapting this design to be two panels wide? I'm looking to build a freestanding wall for my apartment, and this is similar to what I was thinking of making.

My concern is that there might be some torque/shear forces on the small vertical section at the back, and I'm also not sure what the most secure way is to attach the support beams to the horizontal joist at the front.

It is pretty simple and I have built 8ft wide free-standing walls. Just orient the panels horizontal and with a proper frame it should be plenty strong enough. If you are worried about it sagging in the middle you can add horizontal braces on the backside on top of the frame or just use 2x6's. Lots of similar built woodies in this thread so there should be plenty of inspiration.

I was thinking of keeping the panels vertical and building two frames for them, then beefing up the top joist (like 2 2x4s or 2x6s glued and screwed together) and attaching the two frames side by side, and bolting the frames together in the middle once they're up. The issue is that the working space is pretty small and it would be hard to manipulate an 8x8 frame or lift the panel to attach it, and impossible to get it out of the room once it's in.

I should probably try to make a sketch or CAD model of this so you can see what I mean. Really my main concern is that there would be shifting of the kickboard section, but I don't know how much force will actually be out of the vertical plane.

We originally planned an 8' wide design with pretty much these exact changes. Laying a tape measure out on our living room floor gave us a reality check, however, so we went for the smaller version that Michelle posted. I should also point out that there's a hidden 2x4 under one of the pads for added side-to-side stability (recommended, especially for a wider design).

How much? It would look great in my garage, since you stole my color scheme. I think I would rather have it go steep to vert than vert to roof.

I might be interested in some of your holds, especially the larger ones. I'll be in the Springs the weekend of April 7/8 so local pickup would work. Let me know.

thanks! yeah me and a few buddies put it up. took a week but honestly more beer drinking got done than building.
Just to clear some things up, i am not selling my holds, Those will be going to my new climbing gym.
As far as how much i would like to sell it for, let me do some talking with the girlfriend and figure out how much we would like to get out of it.

And suddenly I'm feeling the need to go build my woody. This thread has made me realize I really need to finish mine instead of just having the materials.

Hey, I'm going to be putting up a bouldering wall in my room soon. I was just wondering how those of you who have put walls up feel about painting the woody? I'm not really concerned about the aesthetics of the wall so much as the functionality. That is, I've heard some people say that holds will spin if the wall is not painted with some sort of textured paint. Those of you with unpainted walls, do you find that to be the case? Or does it not really matter that much?

Thanks for the advice!

My wall in my barn is painted and painting, in my experience, does not make a difference except the aesthetic of it. Makes for good vibes, but so does the classic exposed wood (to me).

If anything drop some $ and mix in antiskid sand into paint, makes smearing possible (depending on situtaion of course) and helps fill the potential of your wall/space.

I love danmoyer89's paint job on his woody. Reminds me of a Basquiat painting. Nice job.

My home gym is 1000 sq ft climbing surface in a 20x24 shop with a 12' ceiling. 20/15/10 roll, 20/45/15 bulge, 45/60/30 roof, a 40, a nice arete and some vert. 6"dual density foam with carpet overlaid, pretty fun place to hang out! here's a few photos of construction and finished product... sorry some of the pics are kinda crappy

Thanks, Chris!

This is my third home wall so I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted when I got this shop with my new house. Pretty fun place to play over the winter for sure.

Basement Woody. 1st time build



This is my Woody. It has a 20% angle into a 50% upper, then a vertical wall with a flat roof. It also has a inner corner system. All finish at the hang board.

About $130 in materials and a $75 bucket of holds from a local auction. I used sand mixed with paint for texture.

Good fun and winter training!

A have a few questions:

For those of you who have a free standing, lean-to style woody, how did you attach the support "legs" to the top corners and/or sides of the board? Is it sturdy enough, or would you change it if you could? A picture would help a lot, if anyone can provide one.

How wide is your free standing board?

And one last question, would a 20 degree board need a kicker/footer or be OK without? Thanks.

#1 Lag-bolts work best IMO, check photo #6 and 9 here (rough idea of how I have done the lag-bolts): andylibrande.com/homeclimbingwall/2010/08/my-home-climbing-w>>>

#2: width should be no less then 8ft, 12 ft is really nice

#3: at 20 degrees you probably don't need a kicker.
