what are your limitations? Are you able to weld, or would this involve no welding? Would you prefer wood and metal, or just metal?

you can find them for around $35 to $50, may not be worth the time/effort of crafting your own. here's a few i found...

if u want to use piping than I will have to recommend at least inch and a half black gas pipe. you can go up to 2 inch sice its olympic plates and u can use T junctions and run staight pipe for where the plates go. U will need to measure this out. if u want I can send u measurements

Could I get the measurements and plans too, except for standard plates? I'm building my gym in my garage this week, and I need a plate stand. Thanks.
