Tell us about yourself!
I loved this brilliant idea to pull the rods up and out of the way! I have a ten foot ceiling in my garage. I had to make an extension to lower the rack down 4 ft. so I could reach the rods. I had no wall space so I used my ceiling in front of the garage door, plenty of room up there! I added a cross brace at the bottom, a clothesline pulley and eye hook to make it easier to hoist up and I tied it off with a plastic cleat I had. Thanks for the idea!
You gave great, detailed instructions, I just didn't follow them. I made mistakes and cut the notches out like a picture frame and not like your diagram. I realized my mistake when I flipped it upside down to attach the legs. So I added a 2x4 box frame to the top and then attached the legs. I cut my legs at 15 degrees so the table would be a little taller. I used some leftover dura rock instead of planks for the top and I tiled it into a flag. I love it by the pool to shade our drinks and snacks. Thanks for the instructions!
After I made the gate, the fence looked bad, so I replaced it. Before I replaced the fence I moved the water faucet and sprinkler valves inside the back yard and put them up higher so I don't grab snakes like last year when turning on a sprinkler zone. I added a battery operated timer on the sprinklers so I didn't have to wire up to the house. I added a drain line for the cool deck gutter and covered it with paver rock. I will finish by covering up the PVC with more fence slats to protect it from the sun. In Florida I don't worry about freezing. Whew, an afternoon project turned into two weeks part time!
Thanks for the instructable! I made my table out of a solid door 36" by 96". It was so heavy I had to cut it in half from my truck bed. The door cost $39 from Restore and I used five 2x4s. Pretty cheap for a solid table. I cut a strip of thin sheeting to cover the cut ends. I didn't want the door to swell with humidity here in Florida. I added 3" coasters.
