Somewhere I’ve seen plans using preformed latice work to make a holder for rakes, shovels, etc… Anybody know what I’m talking about or know where to get the plans. I just picked up a partial sheet of the plastic latice work for $3.00 at Lowe’s.

I find the ground works all of the time. Sometimes my stuff can be found in other peoples garages… I actually bought this heavy plastic screw to the wall rack with slots that works pretty well. I imaging if you are going to story shovels and stuff, you probably would build either a box or frame that the lattice sits on top of. If it’s small tools, maybe at a 60 degree angle and just put the tools in handle first?

I saw something about cutting a piece of lattice to fit over the top of a trash can or 55-gal drum and you insert the handles through the lattice.

Thanks Dan, that’s probably what I’ll end up with. LOL Jim, I like that one. Looks real clean. Jack, that’s where they are now, propped up against the shop wall, both inside and out. I decided to do something about it when I stepped on the rake and the handle hit me in the head, for the second time.
