Original post made by Darryl Carter(DRC) on April 11, 2005 i got tired of leaning poles in available corners in our laundry room and wife wasn't thrilled about it either so with scrap materials ive made a prototype that i will redo with nicer wood and more craftsmanship at a later date. but for now the gear is up off the floor and out of the corners heres a few pics of the project my son and i slapped together tonite . its not much to look at but it serves its purpose and it was practally free the foam was out of a water heater box they pack with the new ones its nice thick material i just cut 1 inch thick donuts half each of them and cut the halfs to make them thinner as the pic shows below . after inserting the strips into the rod tip slots i secured them with a short drywall screw. its temp. so if you take your time you could glue them in place . i need to drop the height of the top section down about 8 inches or so to accomodate a couple 5'6" ultralite setups we got .
