Granted, this is not much of a project, but it has certainly come in handy for me on many occassions.

My neighbor gave me this idea for making a “Lean-too” It’s simply three pieces of lumber that I bolt together when needed. I then drive two wedges into the ground to support the back legs. This one is so long and tall that it takes two people to raise it. Once raised, I tie it off to the fence for support. Across the top bar, I have screwed in several hooks that I use to hang “today’s” project. I have used this lean-too for many projects such as to hang and clean window blinds, paint doors, shade plants, and more.

Doc – not sure if “elegant” describes it – but it works :~)
