Home-Built Racks?

So I want to lift.

Before everyone goes all gung-ho on me and tells me to save up, or buy a gym membership, neiter of those options will be considered here.

I was searching online for a cheap power rack and happened upon this site:
http://www.home-gym-bodybuilding.com...ower-rack.html

They "specialize" (I use the term lightly) in homemade workout equipment.

Does anyone have any experience or knowledgable opinions of homemade power racks?

Welp. Not what I wanted to hear, but thanks for some feedback. Think you can get over to his place and take a pic?

The site I listed has plans and whatnot, they look rather sturdy.

For the record. This is for an entry level lifter. I have zero experience, so weight would be very low. I would imagine as I get stronger I can eventually buy a real system.
