Introduction: Horseshoe Boot Rack

My rack holds 3 pairs of boots.

Step 1: Building the Sides

I welded the sides first using 3 shoes for each side.

Step 2: Adding Sides Together

Added rebar so the bottom of the boot could sit on. It also connects the sides together.

Step 3: Welded Top Shoes Together

Welded 6 shoes in a row. So the rack can hold 3 pairs of boots. Then welded the row on top of the sides. Only thing left to do is prime and paint.

add an addition shoe going up and you can put a bench on top

what your not mentioning is how you line them up or are you just winging it? cause im making a 3 tier one that holds 9 pair and im about to throw it out into the field.

maybe you noticed the table I was working on. I took my square and drew a straight line on the table then lined the shoes on the line. I clamped them with a c clamp. Then went to welding. I am not the perfect welder tho sometimes I do wing it like you say. But I find it easier if you draw a line and go from there. But if you have shoes you will throw away send them in my direction.

This is so cool, great idea, perfect for a ranch/barn style house.
