Homemade Heavy Duty Workout Bench

This is a homemade / home built workout bench. I wanted to design something that was cost effective. Some pieces of the bench could be salvaged from other items at home (like the bench cover and padding, and possibly the wood itself). This bench is designed to meet the specifications of a powerlifting competition bench per USAPL standards. Materials 2 – 45 in 2×4 4 – 10.5 in 2×4 2 – 15 in 2×4 1 – 39 in 2×4 1 – 48 in 1×12 1 – 2’x4′ 1″ thick plywood (cut to 12 in wide). 1 – box 2 3/4 deck screws 2 – corner braces 1 – yard pleather/polyester (preferably 50 in wide so the piece is at least 50″x16″) 1 – 4 pack 16″x16″x1″ seat padding 1 – 60″x50″ fleece blanket Something to staple or nail down the bench fabric
