DIY Plate Storage!

These benches are amazing.


If you are looking for a great storage option that is functional and looks really good, I highly recommend these.


The main design came from Greg Everett’s blog post – https://www.catalystathletics.com/article/2185/Plate-Storage-Bench-Building-Tutorial/


I pre-cut all of the timber and drove it to the gym.


Once it was all at the gym it took me about 30 minutes to put together.





Metric measurements for one bench are:

2x 450x1200mm 20mm ply

1x 450x1200mm 12mm ply

4x 470mm long 90x90mm 

6x 470mm long 70x35mm

3x 230mm long 70x35mm

1x 450x1200mm foam

Vinyl – I bought 1.9 meters and it did 3 bench’s 

Screws and staples!
