for 1 last update 2020/08/04 StepsSteps

Part 1 of the 1 last update 2020/08/04 4: of 4:
Making the Posts

  1. 1
    Buy four 8 foot (2.4 m) tall wooden posts. Look for posts that are around 6 inches (15 cm) wide by 6 inches (15 cm) long. These posts will serve as the corners of your wrestling ring.[1]
  2. 2
    Measure and mark 42 inches (110 cm) up from the bottom of each post. That’s where the floor of your wrestling ring will be. Use a marker or pencil to draw a short line at the 42 inch (110 cm) mark on each post. [2]
  3. 3
    Make a mark every 17.5 inches (44 cm) along the rest of each post. Starting at the lines you just marked for the floor, measure 17.5 inches (44 cm) up on each post and make marks. Then, measure another 17.5 inches (44 cm) up from those marks. Continue until you reach the top of the post.[3]
    • There should be about 2 inches (5.1 cm) between the final mark and the top of the post.
    • You''re wrestling on it. Use thin mattress padding that’s about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick.[11]
  4. 4
    Lay a tarp over the floor and fasten it to the sides of the frame. The tarp will protect the padding and plywood from bad weather, and it will make your ring look more professional. After you lay the tarp on the floor, pull it as tight as possible and drill or hammer it into the sides of the frame.[12]

Attaching the Ropes

  1. 1
    Attach a turnbuckle to each eye bolt. The turnbuckles will connect your wrestling ring ropes to the posts. Each post should have 3 turnbuckles attached to it. You’ll need 12 turnbuckles in total.[13]
  2. 2
    Run wrestling ring rope around the ring through the turnbuckles. Your ring will have 3 tiers of rope — 1 tier that runs through the lowest turnbuckles, a second tier that runs through the middle turnbuckles, and a final tier that runs through the highest turnbuckles. Securely tie off each tier so your ring is completely closed off by the 3 tiers of rope.[14]
    • You can buy wrestling ring rope online or at your local sporting goods store.
  3. 3
    Cover the turnbuckles with padding. It’s important that you put padding over the turnbuckles so you don’t bump into them and hurt yourself when you’re wrestling in your ring. Any kind of thick padding will work, as long as it’s secure over the turnbuckles.[15]
    • You can buy turnbuckle pads online or at your local sporting goods store.
    • You can make your own turnbuckle pads with pillows or pieces of mattress pad. Tie or tape the padding to the turnbuckles.
  4. 4
    Test out your new wrestling ring to make sure it''s securely fastened to the frame. You should also test the ropes by leaning into them with all of your body weight. If they don''re securely tied off on the turnbuckles.
    • It''s secure.

  • Question
    Can I use this for boxing?
    Community Answer
    You could, though the two rings are slightly different in dimensions and the number of ropes.
  • Question
    Where would I find metal posts?
    Community Answer
    Any hardware store should have some in the outdoor or fencing section. You might want to paint them to look nicer.
  • Question
    What can be done to make ring posts for an indoor wrestling ring?
    Community Answer
    Use 4x4 boards. Don''s outside then the wood might deteriorate unless you put protective stain on it
  • Question
    How far should the 4-inch diameter metal posts be apart from each other in feet?
    Community Answer
    There should be 12 feet between each metal post.
    Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Thanks!
  • Question
    What kind of ropes should I use?
    Community Answer
    WWE uses rawhide rope, WCW and most Indies use steel cable with garden hose over it.
  • Question
    How long do the ring posts have to be?
    Community Answer
    They should be nine feet long, so you can stick them into the ground and they won''t dig into the ground but need the ring to be outdoors?
