All my bars and handles were starting to take up space. After looking around, the nice, metal, black finish ones were costing $150-200, plus shipping. Absurd!
I built a pair of these homemade olympic bar holders for less than $4.
I bought two cinder blocks, a small amount of concrete mix, and 2 lengths of PVC. I used 2 inch and 1 inch diameter PVC, since I have both types of bars (standard/olympic), but each block can hold up to eight olympic sized bars.
Simply cut the pvc to the appropriate length, place upright into cinder block, and fill the gaps with concrete. I poured on top of a sheet of plywood with no problems.
This setup would also work great for holding brooms, shovels, etc in your garage or shed.
