Lightest woods that would be strong & stable for components of DIY Wall Stall bar?
Maybe this list can help you help me in shortlisting.
Reference list of possible woods available but may not be complete/ comprehensive: : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Indian_timber_trees
I am guessing both of these could be made of different wood, each with different strength/ hardness/ flex/ weight.
Wooden parallel bars/ rods/ dowels
- Are less thick than the frame & probably need greater strength, rigidity & less flex
The Frame holding them
- Made of thicker, wider & bigger pieces of wood, adding more to the weight, so a lighter wood would be better
- Can this be made from plywood?
Which woods would you recommend for 2 components as a good/ best possible combination?
Dimensions & Location:
- Typical standard width is - 34" - Just the space I have now.
- If there's no negative impact, I may consider going upto 38".
- Indian City that tends to be humid & tropical - If its a factor let me know & I can post more details.
Additional Context: Why am I asking for the lighter wood combination?
These will be removable / mountable from the wall, so lighter is better. https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeImprovement/comments/3vwbg4/question_hardware_mechanisms_to_make_it_quick/
