Intro: Metal Clothes Rack
This is part of what I did for my eagle project. It was fairly simple and not very costly. From experience I have learned DO NOT GO TO LOWES. They charge too much. I went to Menards and got everything I needed for 4 racks for literally half the price of Lowes.
Step 1: Gather Your Matetials
What will be needed for this 3 foot rack is simply 3- 3-ft by 1/2 inch steel pipe 4- 90ÃÂ° elbows (half inch) 4- 1/2in tees 10- 3x1/2 steel nipples 2-18 inch 1/2in pieces 1- union And 4- 1/2 floor flanges
Step 2: Note:
Warning: some pipes may be oily and you WILL (I promise) have dirty hands for a few days! now when I made mine I used Tees at the bottom and included more 3in pipes...I will later put a board across the bottom to act as a shoe rack.
Step 3: Start to Put Together the Rack
Start with the square frame. Start at the top connecting the elbows and screwing in the vertical 3 foot pipes. Now put together the legs of the structure (the floor flange is not pictured) please note the union and 18in pieces must go on last!
Step 4: Tighten
Tighten up all the pipes and enjoy this cheap (in price, not quality) piece of metal!
Step 5: Additions
You can add a board at the bottom to make a shoe rack and to add stability!
