Yes, I admit it…I was bored of working on bread knives and corn hole boards so I thought I would mix it up some. I have old cedar mail box post that broke off at the ground and have been looking around for something to use it for. I spotted a plan on the yella wood website for a garden hose rack so I decided it was the perfect project for it. I used some 5/4” scraps that were left over from building a ramp for my storage building (yes I finally broke down and got one so I could get the lawn equipment outta the shop) to make the front and back panels. Some orange and white paint and dug out the Tennessee “T” stencil I cut out last year…viola, its a garden hose rack. Cost was about 20 dollars for paint. Will put it in the ground tomorrow when then local temps drop below that of the surface of the sun.

This is a great idea Buster, I may have to make a couple for myself. then maybe my wife will have some incentive to roll the hoses up after she uses them ( NAH) LOL!!

Joe- Thank you sir. Knew I had seen that logo somewhere before….mystery solved…lol

L2L- Thank you buddy. Do you think that would help? Had a old plastic hose reel that finally gave up the ghost a few months back so our hose has been piled up at the end of the walk for that last couple of months. I had been coiling it up but someone kept using it and then just piling in up…ain’t gonna point any fingers….lol

Frog- Thank you sir.

Another fine job by BusterB! Nice hose rack dude. Good save with the post. Loving the orange. Also, fine job with the ramp. It’s hard to beat getting more room in the shop. Now, about that temperature….. it crawled up to 62 here today, great weather for putting a rack into the ground. See, this place has it’s advantages hahaha. Great job buddy.

Jeff- wow, all the way up to 62 degrees… Really??? We just got back from a cruise to the Caymans and Cozumel… It was hotter than dad gumit down there and it followed us home. Back deck said 101 yesterday afternoon. Granted the thermometer was in the sun so it was actually only 96 or 97…lol

Wow, 101? That sounds like the time of day here. Guess you can keep it. Tomorrow is supposed to be 70 or so. I don’t care for that much heat but the honeybees will love it. Enjoy it my friend.

Jim- Thank you sir.

Jeff- seems we only do 2 seasons around here these days…hot and cold. I mentioned what you said about the temps up yonder and how we needed to visit soon, she said it was too cold. Not sure what’s wrong with that woman…lol well you and the bees enjoy it buddy.

Ivan- Thank you sir. It was a fun project and its nice to get that hose squared away. Need one for the one by the shop next.

I like the hose rack. What did you say that T is for? Ha ha. Nice shed and ramps too. Should open up space for you.
