I took my inspiration from the poster display frames I have frequently seen in discount stores. Each poster is in a steel frame back-to-back with another. Each frame is hinged. The viewer can flip them side-to-side, like pages in a book, in order to see all of them. The garden tools on this custom rack are perpendicular to the wall. Their supports swivel left to right and vice-versa. I made a couple of extra hanger sections so my wife can add more tools as time goes by, if she needs to do so.
Step 1: Materials and tools
- 20 feet of 3/8 inch steel concrete reinforcement bar
- 3/16 inch rod
- 82 inches of angle iron
- #10 or greater sheet metal screws for mounting to the wall
- Various piece of scrap wood
- Grinding wheel and grinder (unless you wish to use the angle head grinder)
- Angle head grinder and cutting wheel
- Electric drill and bits for steel
- Measuring rule
I cut a low-profile acute triangle to be used as a form for cutting pieces of reinforcement bar uniformly and tack welding for repeatable results. The ruler in the photo gives an idea of scale. The exact dimensions are not critical. Make them suit your needs. When finished tack welding, remove the wooden triangle form and finish the welds.
