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.
<p>add an addition shoe going up and you can put a bench on top</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
No I hav'nt thought about it I never entered a contest before.
<p>Have you thought of entering the reuse and metal contests with this?</p>
<p>Good use of the shoes, I have a ton of these (yes literally a ton) from the boys farrier-ing business</p>
Thanks I had fun putting it together. Stay tuned more horseshoe builds coming in the future.
One word:<br>A.W.E.S.O.M.E.<br>This is so cool, great idea, perfect for a ranch/barn style house.
