Winter projects

Here is one of the numerous projects I've been working on this winter. It's a hand tool rack/blower rack made w/ pvc pipe, 2x4's, and many lag bolts. It's alot sturdier than I thought it would be. Bolted through the floor and painted w/ Rustoleum spray paint, gloss black. Feel free to post pictures of your winter projects.

Here is a shot of the blower hanging on the rack. When I drive, I'll put a strap around it to hold it tight.

LE: Rack Looks Great!! I bet it saved you alot of money making it yourself versus buying it from Northern Tool or any other supplier. I think i paid $40.00 for mine. Looks Great! -Mitch-

Thats neat, one thing i would recommend if you haven't already done it is to drill holes at the bottom of the hand tool holders so that water does stay in the PVC holders.
