Had a hell of a time getting my work boots on one day, and new only a horn could help. So I looked around the shop at work and whipped one up quick and easily. Works great!
Step 1: Materials
Find yourself an old 5 gallon bucket. Mine had a hole in it so it was alright to destroy.
Step 2: Cut
Cut out a rectangle as shown. I used an angle grinder with a cutting disk.
Step 3: Finish It Up
I shaped the curve on one end with a bench grinder, sanded all the edges with sand paper, and drilled a hanging hole. Done and done! No more ripped socks!
