Step 1: Preparing One Horseshoe Before Welding
Drill ¼" holes through both open ends on one of the horseshoes.
Step 2: Attaching the Two Horseshoes
Hold the curved parts of the horseshoes together so the two shoes are about 45 degrees apart.
Weld the two horseshoes together at the curve so they are spread apart at about 45 degrees.
Step 3: Mounting the Holder
Screw the open end with the holes onto the wall where you want to store your shovels.
Hang up all your shovels, rakes and other garden tools between the horseshoes or hook them on one of the open ends.
