I recently got a set of Olympic weights, though I don't have any decent way to store them. Does anyone have any plans for building a rack for them?

I found this with the search:

But I don't think my parents would like me drilling into their walls!

I've got access to a table saw and a load of scrapwood, and I'm thinking I can do something with that... Maybe just a triangle shape that lays on the ground with dividers for the different weights; like the metal ones you sometimes get when you buy the plates.

You can also mount pipe on the plywood and stack the weights like this:

Yeah, that's along the lines of what I was thinking of. However, I'll have to angle it, because my plates aren't bumpers, so they do decrease with size. Or, I could just give it a bottom, and not care much about whether or not the weights lie on that.

I'll see if I can make that up by Wednesday night... If not, it'll have to wait until Sunday, I think. When I get it, I'll post some pictures.

I have alot of 1/2 inch thick wood, so I'll be using that, it seems. This is the plan I came up with:

(Safe.)

Scaled to 50% actual size. The first two spots will hold the 45# and 35#, then going left to right, it's 25#, 10#, 5#, 2.5#, and a bit of extra room for some of those 3/4 inch hole weights. All of it will be screwed and glued in securely. I will also put some stoppers near the middle of each section, which will prevent the plates from rolling around, though I haven't done those measurements yet.
