    This is before, not a very good shot, but it shows my old rack, and the rotted planks covered with a sheet of plywood.

    this is after we pounded the new planks in, and built the new trimmer rack.

    This is after we stained it, I think the cedar color looks really nice.

    Looks pretty good. How big of a trailer is it?

    the trailer is a 18x8 foot, with duel axels and electric brakes.

    This is a shot of my new weed eater rack. I plan on adding to it, and making my own blower racks too.

    here is another shot. I wrapped 3M rubber electrical tape around the places where the shaft meets metal, so they wont rub each other. And I just use bungi cords to hold the weed eaters in. Not as nice as a bought one, but $25 dollars verse 125-150 I can deal with bungi cords.

    I had to make cuts to the metal so I could slip the new planks in. Here is how I rescured the cut area down so the board wont pop up, even though its pounded in there and very tight. I havent done the end yet, but the rear has a lip of metal holding the wood down.
