I've got enough room after, I clean out my basement to possibly make a 10x10 ring. Which really isnt to big but it will serve its purpose and get me more sparring in and such...

I was thinking about laying down tires and plywood over that and then get ring canvas and lay that down and buy ring ropes and posts.....

Anyone got any suggestions to build one????

Ask someone who knowa about this.

Go to the srore who sellt ring ropes and stuff and ask, ask the manager at the gym.

I found a pretty decent way to do it and I found out that I have enough room to do a 12x12 ring :)

Im going to make a wood base 12x12

support it with beams underneath and lay plywood over it to support it and then lay the canvas down over the plywood.

I will be using wooden posts as the ring posts as well....

I went to Lowes and it is going to cost me about 200 bucks after all said and done minus the turnbuckles and such, However it is a start and hope to have it done before the new years....


I will take pics when finished.

elveiel-Looks nice wouldnt mind having one but it is to tall.

boxer2k5-Glad to see that stack working for you keep it up and going, it only gets better...

Im from West Virginia.


Im not looking to splurge a whole bunch of money into it really, All I need is a square and some ropes.....

But I figured the cost would be around 200-300 which isnt to bad.

spinks i heard an idea like that where if you want an elevated ring you can bury posts in the ground and put the pole through tires until your at the top and then build a wooden base and laydown gymnastic mats and theres your floor the turnbuckles you can probably buy online and the rest is up to your imagination. :rolleyes:

It would be in my basement, I thought the tires would work as well (and they would) but my ceiling space is ridiculously low so im looking to elevate it about 3-5 inches.....

Turnbuckles I did find 25 bucks a piece *ouch*

Good Ideas though.

well if u got a low ceiling you may just have to go with cementing 4 steel poles in the ground instead of the tire idea. the gym i got to has padding and steel poles in the ground that go up about 4 feet with rubber cables and 4 turnbuckles, yeah 25 for each is a lot but think about how much money your saving over all those rings on ringside.com are like $3,000!

Yeah, I think I am going to have it elevated just a few inches probably 5 inches max.

I thought about using wooden posts but im not sure how those will hold up against someone leaning on the ropes and such....

hey spinks that ring elveiel posted isnt bad
its tall but i dont see why you cant adjsut it or cut some of the top off

im thinking about gettign that


edit: it says it here All Cages can be manufactured to suit restricted height situations. The Cage can be manufactured to be fully functional at heights as low as 130cms / 52". Standard height is approx 200cms 70".

if your basement is still to low you should thin about finding another place to put it

Thanks for the links 2k5, Gave some karma to you.


The cage thing would be nice, but I wonder if they ship to the U.S. though.

Sorry Spinks, but i find it funny that an American wants boxing equipment from the UK!!

Its normally you guys who have the best stuff, i even have to buy tape and gauze from the US!!
