Simple Cheap Horizontal Bar Storage

I've had my garage gym for about 3 weeks now (probably the best investment I've ever made). I've been storing my bars vertically, they just lean against the wall. I wanted to mount them on the wall horizontally somehow. I thought about using bike hooks but those are ~5 bucks a pop, $30 for 3 bars...
I had a spare 2x12 which was about 15 inches long. I cut it in half and then drilled 3 2 1/8 holes barely overlapping the edge of the piece of wood. I then cut a little bit off of the top of the hole so the bar would fit into the hole. I cut the bottom holes a bit larger so I could store the curl bar (today was the most attention that curl bar has ever seen and it may as well be permanently mounted).
It took less than an hour to do and was practically free!
