Some more of that old swing set went into this one (see this instructable for the intro). I was tired of all the long handled tools and other long items (some pieces of conduit currently taking the latter category) falling all over the garage. So I built this stand to hold them all. I figured that the things I stand in here would all lean to one side, so I added a shelf to the top as a small work area or somewhere to place small objects temporarily (trowels or a basket, for example).
One improvement I would make is to put some stringers along the top end of the open space for sorting the tools and maybe it would look neater as well. Maybe I'll get around to it.
