10. Wooden Plate Rack

If barbells are more your thing, try building this nice barbell plate rack and store all your weights in an orderly fashion. Due to the nature of this design, it can store a ton of weights in a compact amount of space.

There’s one DIY dumbbell rack for every type of home gym (or lack of it). Free weights lying around not only clutter up your space but also creates a safety hazard for you and other people using your home gym.
