Rock Climbing Hang Board
* Updated at: April 19, 2022
A training aid for rock climbing that you can use to strengthen your arms and fingers while not at the gym. I made this so you can use a cnc machine to cut it all out.
Keep in mind a lot of the tools I used in this build are optional or there are cheaper alternatives.
- CNC machine
- Belt sander
- Drill Press
- Dremel for sanding
- Orbital sander
- Table saw
- 1/8" & 1/4" router round over bit
- You only need 1-2 2x4's depending on length
- Threaded Inserts (M6 x 20)
- 2x M6 bolts
- Small 1" thick board for pinch holds
- 4 washers
- 4 lag bolts (I went with 1/4" x 4")
- Wood Glue
I designed this in fusion360, I found an image of a hang board I liked and created a 3d model from that. I glued up 5-6 2x4s and planed them flat and square. I used the super glue and painters tape with a combination of some long screws as work piece holdings.
I did not have a long enough router bit to cut all the way through for the holes or rounded edges so I finished it up on the drill press and sanded the corners round.
I finished by using the router and a 1/8" round over bit on the outside edges and inside all the holes/pockets. I used a 1/4" roundover for the pinch holds.
Friends liked it so much they each wanted one.
