I have some links at home that I'll post later.

Are you talking about homemade dumbells and weights, or just homemade racks?

I made one with a 4 x 4 post, drilled three holes (need to put the weights on the 4 x 4 and mark the center of the hole with a pencil, drilled through the 4 x 4 (1" hole) and pounded in 1" pipe, so it stuck out equally from both sides. Made a base with 4 2x4's |=| (like that). I know this is not very discriptive but you get the general idea. This holds 6 diffrent sized olympic plates.
